China Lapsang Souchong: Sophisticated, Smoky Intensity
Our China Lapsang Souchong has a dark and smoky flavor that tea drinkers with a sophisticated palate will love. Legend has it that this tea, hailing from the Fujian Province, was the result of accidentally drying out the leaves over pine fires. The tea was rejected and eventually ended up being traded with the Dutch, who sang its praises and requested more. Thus, this unforgettably peaty, pungent tea came into being. This exceptional tea is generally consumed with sugar, milk and/or lemon. This tea enjoys a well-known reputation as the scotch and cigar lover’s tea!
- Fujian Province, China
- A distinctive flavor and aroma, sometimes referred to as tarry. Heady aroma of a pine wood fire.
