Tea Profile

One of the most famous Chinese black teas, Lapsang Souchong is grown in the Wuyi Mountains in the northeastern part of Fujian Province. Souchong leaves are slowly withered and smoked over pine or other resinous wood, to produce a complex tea. Incredibly distinctive in flavour and aroma, this tea is a must try!


Lapsang Souchong is a member of the Wuyi Bohea family, specifically the Wuyi Caicha Cultivar. It is the only cultivar that can survive under the extreme conditions of the high elevation area and low temperature of the Wuyi mountains of China’s Fujian province. At a relatively high elevation, with a colder and longer winter, Lapsang Souchong has a higher concentration of amino acids. Planted in soil rich in minerals, it produces a distinct fruity and sweet flavor. In 1662, Princess Catherine who was married to Prince Charles, brought Lapsang Souchong to England. Her passion for Lapsang Souchong helped to promote the tea in England.
