Smoked Black Tea
Black tea (zhen shan xiao zhong) from Masu smoked in the traditional way over pine. The base material provides a good mouth feel. Opening the bag will release a fresh smoke smell, strong, but not acrid or overpowering. The smoke quickly mellows out after the first brew and reaches a pleasant and lasting balance with the rest of the tea.The 2018 is a little bit nicer but overall quite similar to the 2016 smoked black tea. Since demand in China is low we only produce this tea every couple years.
