A smoky cup that captures the allure of camping in the wilds of British Columbia.
Estate yunnan tea, meticulously hand-smoked with alder and cherry wood
The Master Blender for black tea personally supervises the slow, small batch hand-smoking process in our Vancouver blending centre. Alder wood is the dominant note but is often supplemented with local cherry wood and, when available, oak broken down from whiskey casks. This blend, along with Pu-Erh, is one of the rare, collectible teas that can age, with careful control of humidity and a constant low temperature.

It's a very tasty tea, I usually drink classic Earl Grey, but after trying BC Forestea I prefer it over Earl Grey. It has a nice smokey aroma, a little less smokey and a bit different compared to Lapsang Souchong, but it's still amazing. I prefer it to Lapsang Souchong, but I love both. Highly recommend, it makes for a great gift too. Will definitely buy again.
I was looking for any brand of lapsang souchong and bought this instead after trying it at a hotel afternoon tea. It’s a lovely smoky flavour, not overwhelming, and is great to start the day. The BC and forest-themed packaging is a big drawcard and makes a beautiful gift too. Also appreciate that the tin can be reused (or recycled) and minimal plastic/other packaging. Will buy again.
I purchased this tea for my partner, who's a fan of smoky and peaty single-malt scotch. He loves it!
