Lapsang Souchong is a robust, intense pine-smoked tea from Fujian province of China. Deep aromas of smoke reveal themselves in a very strong cup. This tea is also used in cooking as either a strong infusion for a sauce or as a smoking agent in the bottom of a dry wok and is a key ingredient in our Asian Tea Rub.
Brewing Instructions: Steep 1-2 teaspoons per cup at 205°F to 212°F for 3-5 minutes
