Lapsang souchong is a tea which has been withered over pine or cedar fires, pan-fried. The result is a smoky, earthy brew with a dominant scent and flavor of campfires, which overlies the flavor of the black tea itself. Lapsang souchong is a black tea originally from the Zheng Shan part of Mount Wuyi in the Fujian province of China. Real Lapsang Souchong is rare, as Wuyi is a small area and there is great demand for the tea. We purchase our Lapsang Souchong direct from local people of Zheng Shan to make sure we have the authentic Lapsang Souchong. Grandtea’s first grade Lapsang Souchong is smooth, rich, smokey and notes of fruit.
