This tea is organically grown!

This tea is from the Inner Tong Mu Village area, within the Wuyi region, the home and origin of lapsang as a style of red tea. The leaves are dark, tightly twisted giving pine wood and floral aromas. The tea soup is deep gold to amber in colour, thick and quality. This Smoked Lapsang is a beautifully crafted producing a careful balance of natural aromas and a light pine wood smoked flavour.

One bud and two leaves standard picking. Harvested in Spring '19. Carefully and skilfully processed by the Chen Family using traditional pine wood smoking and roasting methods.
