Lapsang Souchong

The larger leaves from the tea plant – the souchong – are harvested and then processed into a black tea. The tea is roasted in bamboo baskets and heated over burning pine wood. The pine is what contributes to the extraordinary smoky flavor. Lapsang Souchong has gained great popularity outside of China. The notable smoky flavour makes it a wonderful ingredient in the kitchen. Aside from enjoying it by the cup, Lapsang makes amazing marinades, vinaigrettes, sauces and desserts.

China v

China has a rich tradition for producing higher quality black teas. Known as red tea in China, the tea leaves for these teas are carefully plucked and then gently processed. The result is an exceptionally fragrant tea, soft with warm, toasty notes and less astringency.
Fujian Province is home to the pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong; the famous Keemun, the tea of the Queen,
comes from Anhui Province; and from Yunnan Province the ever popular Yunnan teas.
