If you are a tea enthusiast as I am, you must try lapsang souchong.

Lapsang souchong (拉普山小種/正山小种, lit. Small variety from mountain Lap) is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian. It is sometimes referred to as smoked tea (熏茶). Lapsang is distinctive from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavor.

I once told my friend that it's a tea with smoked bacon in it and he fell for it. Just buy it and make yourself a treat; although it's an acquired taste, you should at least give it a try.
