Lapsang Souchong be a black tea from thar Fujian province of China, famous fer tis' smoky aroma 'n flavor. To create this, yonder finished tea be given some extra dryin' over smokin' pine fire, impartin' a sweet, clean smoky flavor to ye tea. Lapsang Souchong sometimes gets a bad rep fer bein' brashly smoky, but really fine examples aren't like that at all. Our Lapsang Souchong be very approachable: clean 'n slightly cool smokiness in te' aroma, like menthol. Sweet, refreshin' smoky flavor, crisp 'n edgy. Golden-coppery color in thar cup; yonder mark of a Lapsang that hasn't been smoked to a jerky. Sweet pine flavor, lightly evaporatin' finish. Tis' amazin' all ye dimensions of 'smoky' ye can experience in one, very well made cup of fine Lapsang Souchong.

There be many grades of Lapsang Souchong. thar smokin' takes place whilst yonder fresh leaves be withering, 'n again whilst they're bein' rolled 'n oxidized. To do this, elaborate smoke houses, several stories high, be used. At ye bottom level be te' pine fire, which must be carefully controlled so tis' fresh, sweet fragrance isn't lost. thar tea be spread out on each level of yonder house, 'n holes be cut in ye floor to allow different amounts of smoke through. ye tea master monitors ye smokin' diligently, bein' mindful of how ye fire be behavin' 'n how to filter ye risin' smoke through ye levels of tea.
