Lapsang Souchong is a black tea  traditionally produced in the Wuji area of the Fujian province of China.  Traditionally, Lapsang Souchong was carried by camel in caravans all the way  across Asia to continental Europe, acquiring its signature smoky aroma along  the way thanks to exposure to the smoke from the fires burnt for warmth during  the cold nights!

Description

Lapsang Souchong, also referred to as smoked tea, is one of the world’s oldest and most distinctive black teas. The tea is grown in the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian Province of China and is made by only a select number of estates. Once a very secretive process, Lapsang Souchong is prepared using the same manual techniques today that have been passed down from generation to generation.

After the tea is plucked, the leaves are withered over cypress or pine wood fires. The are later placed into barrels so that the smoky aroma intensifies. As a final step, the leaves are place into flat wicker baskets and positioned on bamboo trays over smoky pine fires, where they dry and absorb even more aroma. The finished tea leaves are thick and black and when steeped in hot water, product a rich tea with a unique, smoky taste.
