A famous historical tea, this may have been one of the first black teas. History says it was first produced during war. When in need of dried tea in a hurry, it was dried over a pinewood fire creating the distinctive smoky taste. The leaves are jet black. This was a favorite tea of Winston Churchill and is considered the tobacco of teas for its distinct tarry smoky flavor.

Be prepared to either love it or hate it. It has a strong smell that some find overwhelming.

Lapsang Souchong is also occasional used as a dry rub in cooking or brewed and made into a cooking sauce.

Recommended tea brewing time: Try 2.5 minutes and adjust to taste. Use 1 tsp per 6 fluid ounces of water. You can reuse the same tea leaves to brew again, each brewing time add about 30 seconds to steep time when reusing.

Quantity: 12 ounces of loose leaf tea - this is a LOT of tea so be sure you like Lapsang Souchong before buying this.
