About Lapsang Souchong (Zhengshan Xiaozhong)
Lapsang Souchong is the world's oldest black tea variety. It has a history of more than 400 years, dating back to the middle and late Ming Dynasty. It was created by local tea farmers in the Wuyi Mountain area, Fujian province.
Our Lapsang Souchong is not smoked, which means it remains dark brown, nearly black in color. The leaves are stout with a slight twist. The tea soup is bright red. It tastes sweet and mellow, with a longan flavor and floral aroma and aftertaste. It can be drunk with milk and honey.
