Lapsang Souchong is considered one of the oldest black teas in the world, and its unique smoky flavor results from an ancient tea-drying process. During the Qing Dynasty in China, tea leaves were traditionally dried over pinewood fires to speed up the drying process and meet the high demand for tea. This method imparted the distinctive smoky aroma and flavor that Lapsang Souchong is now famous for. The technique continues to be used today, preserving the tea's historic charm and rich character.
Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
