It feels rare to find a tea that has been smoked like this. There are plenty of western facing vendors with charcoal roasted teas from HK and pine smoked teas from wuyi, but this tea has a very different flavor profile. The smoke is more mellow and leaves a nice peppery note in the aftertaste. The tea has a tiny bit of sweetness and the oxidation has imparted some minerality to the taste. As with all of the Farmerleaf teas, the mouthfeel is great and the tannin dries out your tongue after each sip. Overall, I really enjoy this tea and I hope Farmerleaf tries this half-smoked process next year.
