Lapsang souchong is noted for its rich aromas and flavours which include pine resin, woodsmoke, smoked paprika, hints of dried longan,[5][6] and the evocation of peated whiskey.[7]

It is common for even rather strongly brewed Lapsang Souchong tea to lack the bitterness common with other tea varieties.

 History

The story goes that the tea was created during the Qing era when the passage of armies delayed the annual drying of the tea leaves in the Wuyi Mountain. Eager to satisfy demand, the tea producers sped up the process by drying the leaves over fires made from local pines.[citation needed]

According to some sources, Lapsang souchong is the first black tea in history, even earlier than Keemun tea. After the lapsang souchong tea was used for producing black tea called Min Hong (meaning "Black tea produced in Fujian"), people started to move the tea bush to different places, such as KeemunIndia and Ceylon.[citation needed]

Lapsang souchong (/ˌlæpsæŋ ˈsuːtʃɒŋ/Chinese正山小種pinyin: zhèngshān xiǎozhǒng), sometimes referred to as smoked tea (熏茶),[1] is a black tea (Camellia sinensis) that is originally from the mountainous Wuyi region in the province of Fujian in China. It is distinct from other types of tea, as the leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, imparting a distinctive flavor of smoky pine.
