A Lapsang loose leaf tea unlike any other. Made using traditional methods, the fresh leaf is smoked over pine wood. Singularly rich and profoundly delicious.

Made to exacting, traditional methods this tea is grown in the Wuyi Mountains on the northern border of Fujian, and carefully smoked over pinewood.Β  Only wood that's been stripped of bark is used, allowing the tea to take on a subtle smokiness without any heavy tarry notes.Β  It has the aroma of an autumn bonfire rather than the rapacious punch of our Tarry Lapsang Souchong.
