- Smoked black tea
Lapsang Souzhong is a high-quality tea, the distinguishing feature of which is the intense aroma of smoking.
It is made on the basis of Keemun tea and dried over a fire from pine or cedar wood - it is thanks to this treatment that it acquires its unique taste. The tea is then fermented in wooden barrels until it becomes black.
This tea is a choice especially for people who like original and strong flavors. The infusion has an intense flavor and smoky aroma. Called "men's tea", its aftertaste is comparable to whiskey or cigars.
Souzhong means that the tea has large leaves that curl longitudinally into uneven parts - the so-called smoke teas.
We brew black tea for 3 to 5 minutes. The extended extraction time can cause the release of tannins - compounds with anti-cancer properties - but they make the tea bitter.
