From Tea Story

The story goes that the tea was created during the Qing Era (17th century), when the passage of armies delayed the annual drying of the tea leaves in the Wuyi hills. Eager to satisfy demand, the tea producers sped up the drying process by having their workers dry the tea leaves over fires made from local pines. Lapsang is distinct from all other types of tea as it’s taking on a smoky flavour.

Lapsang Souchong from the original source is increasingly expensive, as Wuyi is a small area and there is increasing interest in this variety of tea.
