Show Description

Lightly smoked to bring out a sweet-roasted flavor, Sweet Souchong is a surprisingly decadent contrast to our traditional Lapsang Souchong, and offers far milder smokey flavor along with a warm sugar sweetness. The tea leaves have been withered over pine or cedar fires, pan-fired, rolled and oxidized before being fully dried in bamboo baskets over burning pine.

Extra Info:

During the Qing Dynasty (1644 to 1911) soldiers were traveling though the Fujian province of China and decided to set up camp in a tea factory. Their presence disrupted the scheduled drying of the tea. When the soldiers left the tea masters had to come up with a way to get back on schedule. They decided to dry the tea leaves over pine fires. What started out as a quick fix turned into a popular tea.

Brewing Instructions:

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.

Ingredients:

  • Organic lightly smoked black tea

Origin:

Jianxi, Henan, China
