Lapsang Souchong gains its unique character from the smoke of high-quality Chinese pinewood.
Lapsang Souchang has become a very popular tea to tea drinkers and especially to those who also appreciate single-malt Scotch whiskey and fine cigars. Its smoky flavour is often considered "assertive" and "bold".
The smoking time is determined for each type separately (Lapsang Souchong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong or Lapsang Souchong Crocodile). Our Lapsang Souchong has a large, open, black, slightly greyish leaf with a sharp note of smoke.
