Lapsang Souchong is an intensely smokey black tea. When you open the bag, you’ll be immediately transported into the woods, sitting beside a gorgeous campfire roaring with crisp, dry, pine firewood.

Lapsang Souchong is an ancient tea that was first made during the early years of the Qing Dynasty in China (1642). It was discovered by accident (as was the sweet milk oolong tea). An army was passing through the village that the tea was being harvested in, which prevented the tea farmers from reaching their farms and processing facilities. Once the army passed and farmers were able to reach their facilities again, they didn’t have enough time to finish processing the tea leaves to get them to the market on time.

Necessity is the mother of invention, so the farmers lit open fires with pine wood to speed up the drying and roasting process of the tea leaves. Not only did the farmers get the tea to the market on time, they had invented a brand new tea flavour that was a sensation at the market. Customers flocked to the intensely smokey black tea.
