Lapsang Souchong Tea

$30.00

Overview

Lapsang Souchong is a black tea distinct from all others, traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, for a distinctive smoky flavour. According to some, it is the first black tea in history, created during the Qing era, when the passage of armies delayed the annual drying of the tea leaves in the Wuyi Mountains.

Roasted in a bamboo basket called a honglong, this contributes to the aroma and smoky flavour. From the Wuyi region of Fujian Province, it is increasingly expensive as Wuyi is a small area and demand is growing for this flavoursome tea.
