Smoking food in a wok over a bed of tea leaves, rice, and sugar is a classic Chinese technique, but the flavors of this salad are decidedly western and very refreshing.
Don’t use tea from a tea bag here; bagged tea tends to be finer and more powdery than loose tea and can lead to burning, not smoking.
• Be sure to thoroughly clean the wok before setting it up for smoking so there are no stuck-on bits of food that could burn.
• If you smoke your food for too long, it can develop a bitter flavor.
