A smoky cup that captures the allure of camping in the wilds of British Columbia.
Estate yunnan tea, meticulously hand-smoked with alder and cherry 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 Pu-Erh, is one of the rare, collectible teas that can age, with careful control of humidity and a constant low temperature.

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.
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.
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.
