These teas are a speciality of Fujian Province in China. The leaves are put through several stages of preparation which culminates in the teas being hung in baskets over smoking pine wood fires to dry. The leaves consequently become intensely black and have a distinctly smoky aroma. The leaves have so much flavour that they can be used for two to three separate infusions.

Taste: An intensely rich and smooth flavour that lingers for a while. Its distinivet smoky notes are most pleasurable

Aroma: Intoxicating mixture of pine and hardwood smoke with a flutter of fruit and spice

Infusion: An orange brown caramel infusion taken well with milk

Originates from Fujian Province

Loose leaf tea:

We would recommend putting one teaspoon of tea per cup into an infuser or filter and then add freshly boiled water. For a pot of tea, always add one teaspoon of tea for the pot and one teaspoon for each person. The length of brewing time can vary according to an individual’s taste but we would recommend the following:

Brewing Temperature: 100°C

Brewing Time: 3 minutes

These are our various handmade packaging options:
