– Lapsang Souchong Chinese Black Tea –
Lapsang Souchong black tea comes from the Wuyi region of Fujian province in China. “Souchong” refers to the fourth and fifth leaves from the top of the tea plant, which are fermented until they reach a distinctly black colour and intensity of flavour.
Lapsang Souchong is a result of smoke-drying in pine or cedar smoke, which changes the taste and aroma. Because of its unique characteristics some consider it to be a manly tea – mostly due to its very strong and distinct flavor that is sometimes compared to whiskey and Cuban cigars.
