STORY BEHIND THE TEA

Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong) is a black tea, or as they call it in China a red tea (hongcha), from Fujian province. This is an unsmoked Lapsang, which means that it is not roasted over pine wood. This tea is therefore much more fruity than its smoked sibblings. 

We call this tea 'Allday Lapsang' because it fits every occasion. If you want a quick alone-session before going to work in the morning, or have a sitdown with friends in the evening, this tea hits the right buttons and is very 'likeable' for a diverse audience. We recommend you to also try the Wild Lapsang, a wild-grown unsmoked Lapsang, in your exploration of this tea. We offer both the 2018 & 2019 picks of Wild Lapsang.

LAPSANG SOUCHONG

Lapsang Souchong is grown and produced in the Wuyishan area which is also famous for its yancha, rock oolongs, such as Da Hong Pao, Shuixian and Tie Lou Han. Although they both grow in Wuyishan, the locations are far apart.

Lapsang Souchong grows in Tong Mu Guan, a remote village (1500 meters above sea level) a 2 hour drive from the area where yancha grows. It’s lush and green, but also cloudy and foggy all the time. The unique environment is very good for growing, and the humid climate is very good for black tea oxidation. Tong Mu Guan is famous for two different black teas: Lapsang Souchong, and Jin Jun Mei.

Traditionally, Lapsang Souchong is smoked over pine wood, but since a few decades farmers also produce unsmoked Lapsang Souchong, which results in a very floral and fruity tea that gained a lot of popularity amongst tea drinkers.
