Legend has it that this intense, smoky black tea from the Fujian Province was the result of an accidental drying of the leaves in haste over pine fires. The rejected tea eventually ended up being traded to the Dutch, who sang its praises and requested more. Thus, this unforgettably peaty, pungent tea came into being, and subsequently, worldwide admiration.

A strong favorite, 8th Jun 2015

When I want to gear up and go camping underneath the pines, this is the tea I pack first. It has an overtone of strong smoke and smooth liqueur that hints at sweetness. It's perfect for mornings when you want a brisk wake-up.
