Product Description

Details

During the early 19th century, many black and oolong teas had a characteristic woody, smoked flavor, due to the use of wood-fired woks. At the request of English merchants, this smoking process was performed intentionally. In the smokehouse, tea leaves are hung from bamboo baskets above smoking wood-pine ash. The flavor is very smoky, enjoyably smooth and uplifting. Compliments well with slightly spicy and oily foods. You’ll either love it or hate it.

Steep Time: 3-4 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1

Licorice Root Herbal Tea

In Sanskrit, it is called “Malathi” or “sweet stalk”. The Greeks named it “sweet root” and the Chinese call it “gan cao”, which means “sweet grass”. The intense sweetness can be traced to glycyrrhizic acid that is 50 times sweeter than sugar. Besides its use to flavor candy and medicines it is commonly used for its anti-inflammatory actions in digestion as well as for arthritis. The aroma and flavor is sweet and comforting, reminiscent of anise or fennel, but considerably stronger.
