Smoked Lapsang Souchong | Black Tea
This world-famous black tea has a smoky, hearty, and robust flavor. It is made with Chinese black tea that has been lightly smoked over pine fires. This tea is an adventure for the uninitiated.
This is a 2019 lot of Lapsang Souchong from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian province. It’s smoked in a traditional multi-layered structure built for this purpose. The fuel is knotty pine (including roots) for maximum resin content to give this tea a sharp hint of pine and the tea has a long exposure to give maximum smokey character.
