Smoked Black Tea
A rich and robust tea with a powerful smoky flavour (think campfire!). The characteristic taste is derived from being roasted over a pine wood fire and can definitely be described as intense.
What Makes this Tea Amazing: You know how there are certain foods that people tend to either absolutely love or really hate? Lapsang souchong appears to be one of those foods. The flavour is most definitely intense - but to those that love it, the smoky cup of a high quality Fujian Lapsang, like this one, is second to none.
Souchong leaves, noted for their thick, rough appearance, are withered over burning pine boughs, placed in barrels covered with cloth and allowed to oxidize. Some inferior teas are flavoured with chemicals in order to enhance the smokiness - not this one! The flavour is 100% natural and due entirely to the drying process.
