lapsang souchong is the earliest black tea in the world. Originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian,China

It has a strong and smoky aroma derived from its drying process over smoking pine fires. As a result its leaves are thick black and its liquor dark red with a flavor of pine smoke. Exported to Europe in the seventeenth century.

Lapsang Souchong can be drunk with or without milk and many find it taste great even after the liquor has gone cold. It also pairs very well with curry and meat dishes.

Our Lapsang Souchong comes from the place of origin Tong Mu Guan in Xing Village, or simply known as Bohea. Many had drank this tea before but only a handful have tried an authentic Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong from the original farm. Highly recommended!

Zheng Shan means “Original Mountain” and only tea leaves picked from Wuyi harvest area can be called as “Zheng Shan”. These dark smoked tea leaves have a subtle hint of a very sweet fruit in China called “longan”. A highly recommended black tea even by those who don\‘t commonly drink Chinese teas. * Please note that due to new government regulations, the smoking process is now somewhat restricted due to overuse of pine trees required. This mostly means that the tea\’s smokiness is a lot more subtle than some people might be accustomed to. Some of us here are actually enjoying the new batches far more than the old. Also the less intense smoked aroma makes the tea pair very nicely with milk.

As world-famous Chinese black tea with its exotic smoky flavor, Lapsang Souchong was exported to West Europe in as early as the 15th century. It was once known as a mans tea but more and more women are drinking it as well. In recent years, Lapsang-Souchong has grown in popularity and become the favorite tea of many who also appreciate single-malt Scotch whisky and fincigars. Drinking it outdoors, especially after any intense activity. You may also wish to try adding a pinch of Lapsang-Souchong to a delicate dessert blend to add a whole new layer of flavor notes to savor.

when i smell the leaves dry, they have a mild smokeyness and smell of pine (like nike shoes in a good way).

when i smell the leaves wet, they smell stronger.

when i smell the brewed tea, it has some smokeyness/pine smell.

when i smell the brewed tea, i taste smokeynessand pine and sweetness

the color of the brewed tea is dark orange to a medium amber.
