This smoked black tea is made according to the traditional methods of the mountainous Wuyi region in northern Fujian. After they are harvested and have undergone the first steps of their transformation, this tea’s dark leaves get enveloped in wreaths of smoke from burning pines. They take on smoky aromas, giving them the comforting characteristic smokiness that fans of this tea crave. The infusion of its leaves releases a beautiful, amber liquor with a slightly sweet, distinctive woody taste, and its smoky aromas transport you to a cozy seat beside the fire, be it at the cottage or a campsite.
