Lapsang Souzhong

Lapsang Souzhong

Larger (souzhong) leaves are taken from the lower parts of the tea bush and after fermentation
they are roasted on a hot iron plate. The tea is then smoked on bamboo racks over a fire made of
green pine logs rich in resin. Souchongs can be smoked to different degrees, and this is a
moderately smoked example. Souchong is a classic tea with a dedicated following.
