The leaf is plucked by the villagers of Tongmu and carefully smoked before it is fully dried. The more premium Lapsang Souchongs like this one is not too smokey and has a sweet delicate undertone. Before sipping this tea, try inhaling the delicious aroma of its smoky fragrance. The Chinese themselves rarely drink this tea; rather, it is manufactured solely for Westerners.

Our Lapsang Souchong is a Fujian version and is milder and softer than most other Lapsang Souchong in the market. And because it came from an old bush the leaves are much larger as well.

This tea is not for everyone. Just like licorice and cilantro, either you love it or you hate it. We do notice that many cigar smokers and whiskey drinkers absolutely love this tea. Its strong smoky flavor also goes very nicely with hot and spicy food, especially by a campfire.
