    DESCRIPTION

    Lapsang Souchong is distinctively smoky and strong. Hailing from Fujian Province, tea is laid in bamboo baskets to smoke over pinewood. Legend has it that this warm, smoked tea was invented when armies passing through the Wuyi Mountains delayed the annual tea drying there. To speed the drying process, tea producers smoked the leaves over wood fires, and Lapsang Souchong was born

    HOW IS IT GOOD FOR YOU?

    Lapsang Souchong’s calming aroma is unique among teas—it is caused in part by the compound longifolene, which is present in pine smoke and found in no other teas
