Where does it come from? Tea is produced a little differently in the Fujian province of China. Following an age old method, the tea leaves are laid in bamboo baskets and dried over glowing pinewood embers. This imparts the wonderful smoky flavour our Lapsang Souchong is renowned for.
What makes this tea different? There isn't a scent or flavour more distinctive than Lapsang Souchong. It's all down to the pinewood smoke that permeates the tea leaves when they're being dried.
