OG Smoked Bamboo Tea

The OG Smoked Bamboo Tea is the traditional tea of many tribes in the Upper Assam region. We call it "Sunga Sah" or Bamboo Tea. It's essentially a green tea because it's not fermented/oxidized. Raw tea leaves are chopped and stuffed into a bamboo, and left to dry in indirect heat in the the traditional kitchen for at least a year.

This is definitely Assamese version of lapsang souchong! The flavor is slightly vegetal, and the aroma is smoky and sweetish.
