Silver Medal Winner of the 2014 International Tea Tasting Competition, Matsumoto-san smokes his black tea using the wood from Japanese whisky barrels. No flavorings or additives used.
The smokiness of the tea is light, not overwhelming like a lapsang, and has been described by reviewers with notes of "oak", "smoked salmon", "plum".
The wood comes from the award winning Ichiro Distillery in Chichibu, Tokyo, Japan.
