WHISKY SMOKE 18 Black Tea
WHISKY SMOKE 18 is a new category of Japanese tea. It's inspired by the Chinese tea Lapsang Souchong, which is traditionally smoked with pine wood. Our tea producer has his own distinctive take on the style, by smoking his 1st flush Yabukita black tea with Japanese whisky barrels from the Ichiro Chichibu distillery. The result is an intensely aromatic black tea with notes of peat, coupled with a long and elegant finish that refreshes the palate.
