In the old times, teas carried on camel back were infused with smoky flavor from the fires used to warm travelers. This prestigious tea follows in those footsteps with pine-fire infused smokiness. The brewing results in a smoky, scotch-like mouth feel with a strong, distinct aftertaste. Those who enjoy cigars and fine single-malt scotches will truly revel in the rich, smoky flavor.
