Product Description

Lapsang Souchong, also referred to as smoked tea, is one of the worlds’ 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. They are later placed into barrels so that the smoky aroma intensifies. As a final step, the leaves are placed 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, produce a rich tea with a unique, smoky taste.

Ingredients

Fine black tea expertly selected from the Fujian province, China.

Brewing Time

A simple black tea with lots of flavor, and a nice kick in the morning as well. It's affordable, easy to access (found at most grocery stores), and easy to recognize due to the marketing and packaging. I love giving Twinings tea as gifts, as well.

My FAVORITE tea!!! I used to be able to find this in store but it's become more difficult over the years. I got a whole case for Christmas. Nice full bodied smokey black tea. Excellent. I usually try to make most people try this.

This tea has such a unique flavor! It's got a smokey taste to it ( I know that sounds kinda gross for a tea, but we aren't talking about a bacon smokey flavor) I would recommend trying it at least once.

This stuff isn't for me, but my husband does like it. It had a very strong, almost whiskey like, smoky aroma that will fill your whole tea drawer.
