Lapsang Soucong 正山小種

Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong) is a classic black tea from Wuyi mountain, Fujian, China. It is considered to be the world’s first black tea and has a history of over 400 years. Legend has it that this type of tea was invented during late Ming dynasty (1568) when an army passed through Tongmu and delayed the tea processing there. In order to speed up the drying process, tea producers smoked the tea leaves over pine wood fire, and thus Lapsang Souchong was created with a unique smoky profile and sweet characterful notes of fruits, cocoa and malt.

Lapsang Souchong also known as Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is a classic black tea from Wuyi mountain, Fujian, China. It is considered to be the world’s first original black tea and has a history of over 400 years. Lapsang Souchong was traditionally smoked over pine wood fire, which creates its characteristic smoky profile with sweet characterful notes of fruits, cocoa and malt. Legend has it that this type of tea was invented during late Ming dynasty (1568) when an army passed through Tongmu and delayed the annual drying period of tea there. In order to speed up the drying process, tea producers smoked the leaves over pine wood fire, and thus Lapsang Souchong was created.
 
正山小種是一種源自中國福建武夷山桐木關的經典紅茶,是世界上最早的紅茶,至今已經有400多年的歷史,亦稱紅茶鼻祖。傳說這種茶是在明朝末年(1568年)因爲一支軍隊經過桐木關而延誤了那裡的茶葉製作過程。為了加快乾燥過程,製茶者將茶葉放在松木火上煙燻,因此創造了具有獨特煙燻松木香,並帶有果香、可可和麥芽甜味特徵的正山小種。
