Lapsang souchong is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian. It is sometimes
referred to as smoked tea. Lapsang is distinct from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally
smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavour.The name in Fukienese means "smoky
sub-variety." Lapsang souchong is a member of the Wuyi Bohea family of teas.
Brewing Guide: 1 to 2 teaspoon (2 grams) of tea leaves is recommended for every 150ml (5 oz) of water. Ideal water temperature is 100°c (212°F). For the first and second brewing, leaves should be steeped for about one minute. Gradually increase water temperature and steeping time for subsequent brewing. It is also recommended that you use porcelain or glass-based teaware. Warm the steeping vessels by rinsing them with hot water prior to brewing
