PalateAroma: Sweet, tarry, alluring overtones.
Palate: Full-bodied and subtle smokiness.
High energy and high caffeine.
This connoisseur's tea born of an appreciation for a smoky palate is prized by leading chefs of the world for infusing creams and sauces with full, smooth, peat-smoke, and earthy character.
Estate black tea, meticulously hand-smoked with alder wood.
The Master Blender for black tea personally supervises the slow, small batch hand-smoking process in our Vancouver blending centre. Alder wood is the dominant note but is often supplemented with local cherry wood and, when available, oak broken down from whiskey casks. This blend, along with the Pu-Erh, is one of the rare, collectible teas that can age, with careful control of humidity and a constant low temperature.
