Lapsang Souchong 正山小种

  • $3.00
Size

The earliest Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, (or Lapsang Souchong) was never deep-smoked. The smokiness was a natural and subtle addition that came from drying the leaves in a wok heated by pine wood. The smoke from the pine wood naturally mixed with the tea, creating a deeper and more forestry flavour that accentuated the tea's minerality. The sweet, roasted quality of the smoke processing blends with the rich flavour of the tea to yield a dark fruity flavour, and bring front and centre the mineral texture of the soil of Wuyi.
