A deep rich smoky flavor comes from the Black Tea being smoked over fresh Pinewood. This produces a dark liquor with a smooth unforgettable taste. To create Lapsang Souchong, the tea leaves are first withered over pine root fires, panfried, rolled and oxidized. The leaves are then placed in bamboo baskets and hung on wooden racks over smoking pinewood fires to dry and absorb the smoke.

Why We Love This Tea...
The scotch of teas, Lapsang Souchong is a BOLD smoky cup!
Tasty, smoky, high quality and fair price!
Nothing beats the heat like a chilled brewed Revival Tea. Turn the heat up on your kettle.
Lapsing Souchong is a smoked black tea but this one is very light and somewhat floral with little smoke flavor. I was disappointed because we use it as a coffee substitute when backpacking and in winter at home specifically for the smoky flavor which was almost entirely absent in this tea.
