Known by tea lovers worldwide for it’s unique strong smoky aroma & taste, this large leaf Chinese black tea is smoked over resin-rich wood, to impart the flavours the Lapsang drinkers hunt down from near & far!
Sometimes referred to as smoked tea, is a black tea that is originally from the mountainous Wuyi region in the province of Fujian in China.
It is distinct from other types of tea, as the leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, imparting a distinctive flavor of smoky pine.
Unlike most black teas, this one can be brewed at a variety of temperatures, depending on individual tastes.
Boiling water will give you a harder, smokier and more astringent tea, while slightly cooler water (80-90°C) will give you a milder, fruitier flavor.
Brewing Temperature from 100 degrees Celsius to 80 degrees
Brew Time 2-3 minutes
