This special type of black tea from the Fujian province of China comes this very distinctive tea with its
exotic smoky flavor. After plucking, the leaves are withered over cypress or pine wood fires.
After the rolling process, they are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to emit their own pleasanaroma. As a final step they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung on racks over smoky pine fires where theydry and absorb the essence of the smoke.
The finished tea leaves are thick and black and when steeped in hot water produce a bright reddish-orange cup of tea. The flavor is very assertive and appeals to those looking for a bold cup of tea.
In recent years, Lapsang-Souchong has begun to grow in popularity and has become the favorite tea of
many who also appreciate single-malt Scotch whisky and fine cigars. It was once known as a man's tea
but more and more women are drinking it as well.
Our Lapsang-Souchong tastes particularly good with salty and spicy dishes and also with cheese. Many
tea lovers report that they enjoy drinking it outdoors, especially after any intense activity. You may also wish to try adding a pinch of Lapsang-Souchong to a cup of English Breakfast blend to add a whole new
layer of flavor notes to savor.
