Description

Smoked black tea from China, great classic.  Low in theine and taste of character. Legend has it that Sherlock Holmes drank it, a fact that makes it a bit mysterious. When picking, we do not take the youngest leaves and bud, but the souchong leaf: more ripe and larger leaves from the lower parts of the branches. After fermentation, these leaves are put on hot iron pans or iron plates and roasted for a short time, then the tea is smoked on exotic resin-rich woods. The smoking time is determined for each type separately (Lapsang Souchong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong or Lapsang Souchong Crocodile).

Our Lapsang Souchong has a large open, black, slightly greyish leaf with a strong note of smoke. The taste is smoky and spicy, the rate of theine is low.
