Lapsang Souchong Loose Tea
This special smoked tea has a distinctive flavor, with the heady aroma of an oak fire. Packaged in a vapor proof triple layer bag. Weight 4 oz. Product of China. The tea originates from Fujian province. The Fukienese word ‘souchong’ means subvariety - that is a subvariety of other black teas from the Wuyi mountains of Fujian. When Lapsang Souchong was first exported to western European countries and became famous on the international markets - it was no doubt due to the distinct aroma and flavor. Interestingly the best Lapsang is produced in the nature preserve located in the Wuyi mountains where the high mountains with thick pine forests and heavy mist provide the ideal environment for growing top quality tea.
