“I’m not sure if this is the same “Tao of Tea” as I noticed there were two in the library… Either way, I only have a sample of this, and I think it will stay that way! The Lapsang I tried at Teaopia...” Read full tasting note

“This is a great balence of smoke and classic Chinese red tea. Both amicably sit in the cup trading small talk while one does their everyday business. I’ve been breezing through this laid back...” Read full tasting note
“This is one of my favorite teas. The pine smell alone is intoxicating and reminds me of going camping. The tea is quite nice. Very smooth.” Read full tasting note


Famous Lapsang Souchong (Pine Smoked Black) originates from Mount Wuyi (on the northern border of Fujian province with Jiangxi province, China). In 1999, Mount Wuyi entered UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites, both natural and cultural. It is a well known biodiversity conservation zone of Southeast China. In making Lapsang Souchong, the leaves are withered, pan-fired, rolled and oxidized before being fully dried in bamboo baskets over burning pine. the result is a very smoky, but smooth, enjoyable flavor. Compliments well with sweet and spicy foods.
