Smoked Black Tea
My cousin lives in the mountains above Tongmu in a village called Masu. This is black tea (zhen shan xiao zhong) from Masu smoked in the traditional way over pine.Opening the bag will release a fresh smoke smell, strong, but not acrid or overpowering. The first steep may give you the impression of cooking breakfast over a pine fire, but the smoke flavor quickly mellows out, and becomes well balanced with the sweetness of the black tea and mineral flavors. The base material provides a good mouth feel.
