About This Blend

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.

For BC Forestea

Smoked teas are traditionally black teas that have been hand-smoked over different types of wood, i.e. Pine, Alder, Cherry. The TEALEAVES 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.

Our Master Blender chooses Yunnan, or Dian Hong, as the base for our BC Forestea. Dian, which refers to the ancient name for Yunnan Province, is a broad-leafed black tea. Yunnan teas are known for their smooth, sophisticated often cocoa or tobacco-like flavor profile.

Black tea should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 210°F or 99°C.

Great for smoked tea lovers

This tea reminds us of stays at Manoir Hovey Quebec. It has a smokey flavor which is different to Lapsong Soochong. It makes a nice strong cuppa and my husband loves it.

Reminiscent of Being in the Mountains

A lovely sweet smokiness, not overwhelming. If I close my eyes and breathe in the aroma of this tea, I can imagine that I am back in BC in the mountain forests.

My fav

I've been working through various Tealeaves teas and I think this just might be my favourite. It truly is beautifully blended. Subtle and exquisite. My afternoon tea of choice. Highly recommend.
