Lapsang Souchong

Lapsang Souchong is an organic loose leaf tea from the Northern Hills of the Fujian province in China. According to legend, in the mid-17th century, villagers were forced to hide their harvest of fresh tea from an invading army. When the army left, the tea needed to be dried quickly in order to reach the market on time, so the villagers used open fires of pine wood to dry the tea leaves. At the market, the Dutch loved this new “specialty” tea and they began the tradition of Lapsang Souchong. This smooth, crisp black tea presents a tarry and smoky taste that pairs well with smoked or barbecued meats.
