One of our most unique tea offerings, Lapsang souchong is a tea which has been withered over pine or cedar fires, pan-fried, rolled and oxidized before being fully dried in bamboo baskets over burning pine. The result is a smoky, earthy brew with a dominant scent and flavor of campfires, which overlies the flavor of the black tea itself.

Lapsang Souchoung can be used as a marinade or to make a reduction sauce for a unique twist on grilled protein or vegetables.

Amount of Tea: 2 teaspoons for a single cup.

Steep Time: 4-5 minutes. The longer you steep it, the stronger the smoke flavor will become.

Water Temperature: 190 degrees F. Allow boiling water to cool for about 2 minutes before adding black tea leaves.
