"This is an accumulation of several recipes and I am hoping to be making them soon. Times are estimated but cook time includes the 20 minutes when the wings are of the heat before going to the grill/broiler."

Cut wings into 3 sections, you can discard tips or do as I do put them in bag, seal and then add them to my stash of wings in a box in my freezer and at a later date use them to make chicken wings.
Whisk together the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the bowl and marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
Remove chicken wings from marinade.
Cover the inside of a wok with heavy duty aluminum foil leaving about 12 cm (5 inches) hanging over either side.
Place the sugar, green tea, rice, star anise, and sesame seeds in the foil in the wok and stir.
Heat over medium high heat for about 5-8 minutes, the mixture should begin to smoke and then place a rack over the wok and put chicken wings on the rack and cover with a second piece of foil, using the overhanging part of the bottom piece of foil to crimp together with the top piece and form a tight seal and cook over the heat for 12 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave for an additional 20 minutes (this will infuse the smoke into the wings).
Turn on the grill/broiler on and place chicken on a baking sheet and grill/broil until crispy and dark on both sides about 10 minutes.
To finish: garnish with cilantro, sesame seeds and green onions.
