My favourite smoky tea – this has a punchy smoke aroma – but the taste of the tea is pleasantly subtle. Good with a dash of milk, with or without sugar – I prefer without. Pairs well with meaty and hearty foods – such as english breakfasts and bacon sandwiches. Also the best tea for making tea-smoked duck (from an Annie Bell book, ‘More Taste Than Time’ – but similar recipes exist online).

… Here’s a good (similar) recipe for tea smoked duck online by Mark Hix – this one includes Szechuan peppers – so its both spicy and smokey http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/recipes/teasmoked-duck-with-egg-noodles-825046.html

Bio

I love great tea – and I’m getting into gourmet tea to reduce my interest in gourmet food in order to lose some weight. Tea brands I can access easily near my offices and home are from Fortnum & Mason and PureTea – which are delightful. However my real passion is collecting tea and related items from Mariage Freres – and as a marketer I think their brand and story is just brilliant.
