A splendid smoked tea produced in Japan, at the foothills of the majestic Mount Fuji. This black tea is made from the renowned Yabukita cultivar and is only produced in very small quantities. This is produced by Mr. Matsumoto, in a family-owned plantation which has been growing tea for 150 years. It is unique as it is smoked with cedar wood for 7 hours.

An unconventional tea with smoked, peppery, fresh herb and tobacco notes. Its finely powdered texture gives the fragrances a long finish when tasting. A gourmet experience like no other.
