Product Description

Lapsang Souchong, generally referred to as smoked tea, is a black tea originally from the mountainous Wuyi region in the Chinese province of Fujian. It is distinct from other types of tea, as the leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, imparting a distinctive flavor of smoky pine. It is believed the tea was created during the Qing era when the passage of armies delayed the annual drying of the tea leaves in the Wuyi Mountain. Eager to satisfy demand, the tea producers sped up the process by drying the leaves over fires made from local pines. According to some sources, lapsang souchong is the first black tea in history, even earlier than Keemun tea. A pinch of Lapsang goes well with any black breakfast tea and any enjoy it as a tea cocktail mixed with single malt Scotch whiskey.
