Details

The original, authentic unsmoked Lapsang Souchong is totally hand-made with the young and tender leave buds harvested in the early spring from Tong Mu Guan, Wuyi Mountains, a national nature reserve seen by Chinese tea experts as the core Lapsang Souchong tea producing area. Surrounded by dense pine forests, the high altitude tea gardens are shrouded in heavy mist providing the ideal environment for growing premium quality tea.

Small, tightly rolled whole leaves buds with black sheen yields clean, bright and lively liquor; the aroma is warm, sweet berries and honey. The taste is rich but clean, offering a wide spectrum of floral and berry notes. The natural sweetness and the malty underlining tone makes this tea an easy to enjoy cup that does not need the addition of milk and sugar.

This unsmoked version of Lapsang Souchong tea is a traditional Fujian red tea, and also has been very popular among our customers. It would also be a perfect choice for those who wish to try Lapsang Souchong while don’t like its strong smoky taste.
