Lapsang Souchong is a famous black tea from the Wuyi Mountains region of Fujian. It is made with the large leaves of the native cultivar. The tea leaves are smoked over pine wood fire. These leaves absorb the smoky aromas well, which makes this tea unmistakably characteristic.

It is a fascinating, versatile tea with dashing aromas and an impressively wide flavor palette. It is charismatic and has an immediate effect on the whole body. It is smoky first of all, but the smokiness is gentle and sophisticated, spicing up but not overwriting the rest of the flavor notes. Among the main flavors are pine wood, caramel, pickles, and smoked paprika in an exciting and unique balance. It is refreshing thanks to the sour smoky-woodsy aromas but also sweet with a lasting syrupy aftertaste.

The tea leaves open slowly so the tea can go as much as 20 steeps. It is so lasting that you can easily serve a large company of guests or enjoy it throughout the day. It is also extremely tolerant. Even if forgotten, it won't turn bitter on you, so both lovers of specialties and beginners can get an unforgettable tea experience with this premium quality Lapsang Souchong.


History of Lapsang Souchong:
Lapsang Souchong was first created in the 17th century. Tea farmers plucked the new tea leaves already, but before they could process them properly, they had to flee from the Qing soldiers who were quickly invading their territories. To prevent the leaves from spoiling, they had to speed up the processing, so they dried the leaves over pine fire, and buried them in sacks. Later, after they returned, they sold these sacks to the Dutch who loved the tea so much that they came for more, and an entirely new tea was born made especially for the European market.

STEP 1) Warm your teapot. Pour boiling water into a gaiwan or teapot, let it sit for a little while, then discard all the water.
STEP 2) Fill your pot with tea leaves in a 3g/150ml ratio, pour boiling water on them, and brew for 30 seconds. (No need to rinse the leaves before the first brew.)
STEP 3) Serve. Pour the tea into a pitcher, and then into cups.
STEP 4) Brew again.

❖ For the second infusion, steep it for about half the time of the first infusion. For every other infusion after that increase the steeping time (to about 35-40 seconds).
❖ Use hot water (95°C) for each infusions.
❖ Make sure to open the lid of the teapot between infusions, to prevent the leaves from cooking.
❖ This is how we recommend brewing this tea, but we all have our preferences, so try experimenting to find the way you like it the most.
