SKU: L-BEV-1 Category:

Black tea from the legendary Wuyi Mountain that is famously dried over pinewood smoke, lending it a deep “campfire” flavor along with the thick, rich, malty, characteristics that define a black tea.  These flavors emerge from caramelized sugars released from the veins of the tea leaf during a black tea’s definitive rolling, bruising and extensive oxidation phase.
