  • How to Brew
  • Black Tea
  • Ingredients

For Best Brewing

  1. Use one heaping teaspoon of loose leaves per 8 fl oz of 215° water.
  2. Let it steep for 5 minutes. Wait patiently for perfection.

Black tea is the fully oxidized leaf of Camellia sinensis and requires the most processing. The brewed liquor ranges between dark brown and deep red. Black teas offer the strongest flavors and, in some cases, the greatest astringency.


  • Product Details

This tea from Fujian province of China balances the astringency of a smooth, black Chinese tea and the sweet, smoky character of pungent pine smoke. Its famous flavor was accidentally achieved long ago during the Qing dynasty when tea workers tried to speed up the drying process by drying the leaves over a pine fire. The taste was greeted with unbridled enthusiasm, and here we are today. Now intentionally smoked, this unforgettable tea has a deep, red-brown cup color, invigorating aroma and a smooth, slightly sweet smoky flavor.

    Souchong is great This is quite an usual tea and if you like dark brooding teas, this is a good choice. The smokiness is not overpowering but is conspicuously present. Tasty for the evenings after a bath. January 26, 2014
    Barbecue Aroma Beware that this tea has a very smoky aroma. However the taste is less intensely smoky. January 2, 2014
    5 star as a ham flavoring 0 stars as a beverage This tea tastes like ham without the salt. I am going to use the "tea" that I brewed to flavor a pork roast. I suspect that it would be good vegetarian/low sodium seasoning in a split pea or vegetable soup. December 11, 2013
    Smokey good I love the scent of this tea. It reminds me of the rich smells of the summer and smoking meats. We joke that this is the perfect tea to serve with barbeque. The tea has an intense, complex taste and scent. I think that this tea can stand alone and should be sipped. You might want to try it iced. Milk and/or lemon not recommended! It is a good buy for this product. November 16, 2013
