Tarry Lapsang Souchong

This Tarry Lapsang Souchong is a special version of traditional Lapsang Souchong, a black tea (Hong Cha) from Wuyi. For this extraordinary tarry Lapsang Souchong were tea leaves of wild growing tea bushes used. The area around Tong Mu is very remote and can only be reached by long marches. The tea was smoked over pine wood and tastes very natural and wild. Smoking the tea leaves is an old tradition for Tarry Lapsang Souchong and is a unique feature of this tea variety.
The almost inaccessible tea growing area makes industrial production virtually impossible and so this tea is still harvested by hand. The manufacturer also produces out of conviction purely biological. This is also promoted by the government since Wuyi Shan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it should remain like this. The Wuyi mountain range stretches at an altitude between 200 and up to 2058m and have a mild climate with an average temperature of 21°C.
Tea production in Wuyi has a tradition of over a thousand years and the historical knowledge of the art of tea is passed on from generation to generation.
