Tiers of centuries guard sacred writings only wise eyes witness, while shrouded in mystery. Smoky mist clings to craggy cliffs, heads lost in the clouds.

About This Blend

Lapsang Souchong or Zhengshan Xiao Zhong, literally means "small plant from Lapu mountain". The amount of smokiness from roasting can be varied to produce a very smoky version (Tarry Souchong). Smoke houses, several stories high, are used for modern production. At the bottom, pine needles burn and are carefully controlled by the Master Smoker to enunciate the key notes of the tea without having the smoke overwhelm the entire character. Lapsang Souchong is one of the first Chinese black teas to be introduced to the Western world.

This Tea Improves Winter

A pot of this tea shared with friends makes winter a season not to be endured but embraced. The smokiness of the dried leaves is overwhelming when you sniff it, but once brewed, it's subtle and settles very nicely behind the eyes.

First Time Try and was Pleasantly Surprised

The Lapsang Souchong black tea has smoked pine needles. I was not sure of what to expect from this tea as I was looking for more hints of pine needle scents, and I am not sure of any wellness properties. However, I enjoy what this tea does offer, a nice smoky aromatic and gentle smooth flavour. Great for the evening in or outdoor sip! A very good tea!
