This Lapsang Souchong is a Chinese tea that, after oxidation, is dried in bamboo baskets over burning coniferous or cypress wood. This develops a strong smoke flavor.
A delicious tea during the winter months or a nice tip: combine it with salty or spicy flavors or strong-tasting cheeses... go try it out!
A short story about this oolong tea... because every tea tells a beautiful story.
A legend has it that this way of preparing tea was discovered by accident. During the Qing dynasty, an army unit encamped in a tea factory. After the soldiers finally left, the tea factory workers realized that they had too little time to dry the tea in the usual way, so they dried the tea over the fire. The new flavor was a sensation.
