Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Line a large roasting dish with aluminium foil.


Scatter the tea leaves, sugar, cinnamon stick and star anise in the dish.


Place a wire rack over the aromatics and cover the roasting tray with foil. Place the roasting dish over a stove plate or gas hob and heat to its highest setting. Allow the chicken wings to smoke for at least 20 minutes.


Meanwhile, juice the lemon and whisk together 4 tbsp of juice, sugar, vinegar, chilli paste, fish sauce and chilli flakes in a medium bowl. Grate in the garlic cloves.


Remove the chicken from the rack and toss in the basting sauce.


Arrange the wings in a roasting dish and roast for 30 minutes or until golden and cooked – basting every 5 minutes until sticky and caramelised.


Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
