The history of this tea is more than 400 years. Traditionally made in Wuyishan, Fujian, China, nevertheless, our tea is a great Taiwanese version with a deep, sweet, and bright taste. Thanks to a special processing method, when tea leaves are dried over pine wood, almost smoking, this tea acquires a special sweet, smoky flavour.
Made from authentic Wuyishan cultivar Xiao Zhong, traditionally used for the production of this kind of tea while following all the rules of the traditional method, this tea is quite surprisingly different to nowadays market Lapsang Souchong. Tea has an intense and complex, smoky and woody aroma with notes of prunes, balsamic vinegar, resin, pine, and cacao beans. The taste is sweet, deep, and thick with notes of honey, dried fruits, and smoked meat. A little bit spicy in the aftertaste. This tea develops during the whole tea session bringing new notes and flavours. There are some firm notes of Rock tea in it as well. Tea has an obvious calming and warming effect.
