Lapsang Souchong is famous for its strong smoky flavor, reminiscent of a campfire. The strong signature pine and oak smoke aroma of this organically-grown smoked black tea makes it the most popular and familiar Lapsang Souchong tea. This bold tea is made from full-flavored mature spring leaves (souchong), crafted with the same traditional techniques used hundreds of years ago. Our Lapsang Souchong is smoked over pine and oak, giving it the distinct rich smoked aroma and flavor. The tea color is a rusty red and the smoked flavor and aroma will remain in the tea for many infusions (up to 5). We highly recommend cooking with this tea, adding it to sauces and marinades is an effective way to get a genuine smoke taste without a smoker.
