Sun dried bud heavy picking of assamica varietal from Yunnan province that is typically made into Puer.We commissioned this black tea production in 2022 and sent it to a smokehouse in Tongmuguan village in Fujian to be pine smoked by a veteran Lapsang smoker. The three day smoking process occurs at temperatures from 100C to 120C in an old style Lapsang smokehouse. Pressed in Yunnan in 2023.
All of the thick body and malty sweetness of a chocolatey Yunnan black tea, laced with the thick pine smoke of a Lapsang. Better than drinking scotch at 9 in the morning.
Pressed in 2022. Each cake is 200g. The cakes are in bamboo tongs, with five cakes per tong.
