Smoked Bohea is a high-mountain tea grown in the Wuyi Mountains of Southeastern China. Averaging an elevation of 1700 feet above sea level, this tea is produced in micro lots in the western Fujian Province. Smoked Bohea, instead of being air or sun dried, is smoked over a smolder pine wood fire, instilling a rich, deep complexity. As legend goes, this smoking process originated centuries ago as a quick fixation method for villages fleeing from invading dynasties. However, the tradition has since cemented itself in the Wuyi Mountain region.
This pairing of Smoked Bohea and Rose Buds offers more of a delicate cup than just the tea alone. Look for crisp floral undertones with rich caramel-like smokiness when enjoying this flower infused Bohea either hot or over ice.
