Smoky and slightly spiced.
The most prominent part of this teas process is that it’s smoked over exotic woods rich in resin. It is said that it’s creation was due to disruption from soldiers taking over a tea factory during the Qing dynasty in China. After events, the workers had to sell the tea fast; so they lit open fires to speed up the drying process – therefore smoking out the tea.
