HARNEY AND SONS - Lapsang Souchong

Lapsangs comes from The Wuyi Mountains (WuyiShan) in the northeastern part of Fujian Province. This was where black teas were first developed (called Bohea.) In the steeply forested mountains wood was plentiful, so it came naturally to smoke tea like bacon. The leaves were slowly withered to create a complex tea, then the leaves were slowly dried in rooms with a smoky fire below. An ancient and much loved tea from China, large leaves are dried over smoky pine fires. As you might imagine, the tea develops a distinctive smoky flavour. Give it a try when you want a change of pace. 4oz produces c. 45 cups

Tin measures 70mm X 70mm X 95mm and contains 3oz/85gm of the finest loose leaf tea.
