Discover Lapsang Souchong Tea
Lapsang Souchong is a smoked black tea which originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China.
It is believed that Lapsang was the first black tea produced in China.
It was first produced in Tongmu Village using the Camellia Sinensis Bohea tea bush variety at the beginning of the 19th Century.
Lapsang is distinct from other tea types due to its unique flavour of smoky pine which is comparable to fine cigars and a single malt whiskey.
