A smooth crisp character with the remarkable and heady aroma of a pine and oak wood fire.
The flavor of Lapsang Souchong is, to the uninitiated, quite an intense flavor to behold. However, to those who know, the smoky cup of a high quality Fujian Lapsang is second to none, mysteriously miraculous, a feast for the taste buds, truly one of those unique items for which there is no middle ground of appreciation. Souchong leaves, noted for their thick, rough appearance are withered over burning pine bows, placed in barrels covered with cloth and allowed to ferment. A process which has gone virtually unchanged for hundreds of years.
