Smoked Black Tea
What makes Lapsang Souchang so special ?
A tea with a an earthy smoked flavor like none other. The leaves are slowly dried over pine wood fires. After the leaves are rolled, they are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to give off their own smokey, sweet aroma. They are then placed in bamboo baskets and hung on racks over smokey pine fires where they dry and absorb the essence of the smoke. On occasion they are also buried underground during the smoking process. Strong + bold this is a tea worth adding to your collection.
