SUMMARY

Type: Red (black) Tea
Origin: Tongmu Village, Wuyi Mountain, Fujian Province, China
Producer: Mr Chen

Traditional Lapsang Souchong (正山小种) was the first Red (Black) tea ever created. Traditionally, this type of tea is a smoked tea that's been very popular in the West for many decades. In 2005, the people of Tongmu village developed a non-smokey type of Lapsang Souchong, which has since became more popular than the traditional smoked version within China. 

Our non-smokey Lapsang Souchong Black Tea is grown in Tongmu village, which is located in the Wuyi Mountains in northern Fujian province. Located within the Wuyishan National Nature Reserve (a restricted access zone), the tea is grown at an altitude of 1200m and in areas surrounded by a lot of bamboo trees. This growing environment has no doubt had an effect on giving this tea it's unique flavour profile and characteristics.  

TASTING NOTES

Unlike a lot of non-smokey Lapsang Souchong Black teas, which have a deeper, malty and dark chocolate-like flavour, our Floral Lapsang Souchong is a light and refreshingly sweet Black tea with delicate floral notes and hints of citrus.

STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
