    • We call this the "smoked barbecue" of hot or ice tea
    • The icing mutes the smoky flavor and this tea pairs beautifully with any fare that has a note of smoke
    • According to tea lore, this tea resulted from the accidental proximity of a tea factory containing processed black tea and a smoky fire within a nearby pine forest

    • Tea from the Wuyi Mountain area of China is often heated with pine wood and absorbs a bit of the smoke in the process
