Description

Organic loose leaf black tea from the Fujian province of China. A bold leaf with full bodied flavor, smoked over a pine fire to give a clean, slightly cool smokiness. An excellent hot beverage on a cold winter day.

Lapsang souchong is the first black tea in history, even earlier than the famous Keemun tea. After the lapsang souchong tea was used for producing black tea called Min Hong (meaning “Black tea produced in Fujian”), people started to move the tea bush to different places like Keemun, India and Ceylon.

Lapsang souchong is a member of the Bohea family of teas (“Bohea” is the pronunciation in Minnan dialect for Wuyi Mountains, which is the mountain area producing a large family of tea in South-East China).[citation needed] The story goes that 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 drying process by having their workers dry the tea leaves over fires made from local pines

  1. Derek

    Being more of a drinker of light teas, I find Lapsang Souchong to be a nice occasional tea. The smoked pine flavor is almost the only flavor to make it to my tongue. Probably the best–and definitely the silliest–way I can describe it is a fine, liquid bacon, (without the meat, obviously). The strength of the flavor is such that I find half a teaspoon per cup to be more than sufficient, especially since I generally find trying for more than one steeping to have disappointing results.

  2. High on memories

    A friend and I came across this tea in Ithaca. We tried it on a whim, and were not disappointed. It’s incredible, you’ve got to try it! It’s got a smoky, inviting aroma that coaxed hours of reminiscing from my friend and I. YOU’VE GOT TO TRY IT.
