What does the smoky taste of black tea come from?
The traditional process of Souchong black tea goes through the processes of withering, rolling, fermenting, pan-frying, re-kneading, smoking and roasting, and re-fire.
Due to the method of burning Masson pine wood to heat withering and heavy smoke to dry, the tea absorbs a lot of pine smoke and has a unique pine smoke aroma.
Does it belong to Lapsang Souchong?
No,It belongs to smoked Souchong, which is a kind of black tea different from Lapsang Souchong. The "Lapsang" of Lapsang Souchong means that it is truly "produced in the high mountain tea area", so the black tea produced in Tongmu Village, Xingcun Town, Wuyi Mountain can be called " Lapsang Souchong".
Its raw materials are collected from the surrounding areas of Wuyi Mountain and made from fumigation, so it has a stronger pine smoke aroma than Zhengshan Souchong, and the price is much lower.
