A speciality of China’s Fujian province.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong light and odours. Once opened, store in an airtight container.
Invented by accident during the 16th century when a travelling army spent the night in tea warehouses in Tongmu village, Fujian. They slept on the sacks of tea, which made them damp, and this sullied the flavour. The tea farmers then smoked the tea over pinewood from the region in order to dry it.
Suitable for vegetarians.
