Tasting Notes: Dark red in brewed form, and has a pronounced smoky aroma and flavor.
(China/Black) Lapsang comes originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese Province of Fujian. The leaves are bold and ragged in appearance. Lapsang is distinct from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavor. We recently upgraded our Lapsang.
