Lapsang Souchong

This very unique type of black tea from the Fujian province of China comes with a very distinctive exotic smoky flavor. After plucking, the leaves are withered over cypress or pine wood fires. After the rolling process, they are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to emit their own pleasant aroma. As a final step they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung on racks over smoky pine fires where they dry and absorb the essence of the smoke. An acquired taste in black teas.
