Gongfu!

Began my morning today with a session of this Sakura Cherry Wood Smoked black tea in my lovely smoked tea dedicated yixing pot! I’ve had a handful of these different smoked teas that utilize these more unique wood types, but this is definitely my favorite so far! It’s got the intensity of the smoke that I so badly crave, but it’s a very clean and sweet smoke with a really wide breadth of diverse tasting notes. On one end of the spectrum, whether it’s placebo or not, I do get a more aromatic floral and fruity sweetness that reminds me a lot of cherry blossoms and cherry blossom flavoured sweets. Conversely, there’s also a darkness and depth to the steeps that channels more of the burnt sugar and molasses rich taste of something like black licorice. I found it an invigorating and deeply captivating tea session to begin my day with, and I’m so pleased with the unique nuances within this delightful smoky tea!

Amidst the sweeter, smokier, heavier notes, this tea is crisp and definitely has some hints of fruit. Doesn’t remind me of cigars or ash however. So clean, very rich, doesn’t take milk well though (I’ve been known to milk a lapsang and enjoy it). Works well hot and iced. The tartness and smoke linger for quiet a long time.

Makes you want to sit outside in the morning and hear the world get in tune while you sip. Just makes me happy. My new favorite smoked black.
