This famous tea from China’s Anhui Province is made by drying robust black tea over pine wood smoke. The flavor of pinewood smoke nicely complements the sweet silkiness of the black tea.
An undertone of sweetness and a light but a lingering astringent finish makes this tea a very enjoyable. Very smooth.
From an organic tea garden.

The practice of smoking tea dates to Quing Era when it was begun as a way to hasten the drying of the tea for the marching armies. It is supposed to predate the manufacture of Keemun, another popular black tea from China.
