Lapsang Souchong Tea
(1/2 lb. Bag)
|Lapsang Souchong tea comes from the Fujian province of China. This is a very distinctive tea with an exotic smoky flavor. Lapsang-Souchong has grown in popularity with those who appreciate single malt Scotch whisky and fine cigars.|
The preperation of the leaves involves withering over cypress or pine wood fires. After the rolling process, they are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to emit their own pleasant aroma. As a final step they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung over smoky pine fires where they dry and absorb the smokes essence.
The finished tea is thick and black and when steeped in hot water produces a bright burgundy-orange cup of tea. The flavor is assertive and bold.
