“Fu Soonga” is a new type of smoked tea that is made from Assamica leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, and is one of the first smoked black teas outside of China. It is made in much the same way as Lapsang Souchong but it is smoked with local Indian woods instead of the Chinese pine wood. The tea’s name is a combination of the words Fu (Blow) and Soonga (Cane), and is a reference to the traditional way of cooking foods by filling young bamboo canes with the food and placing them over open fires. In this case the smoke from the fires is blown through the bamboo canes and over the drying tea leaves. This imparts a smokey flavour that is light and well balanced when paired with the aromatic smell and smooth taste of the Assam leaf.
