Lapsang Souzhong

Larger (souzhong) leaves are taken from the lower parts of the tea bush and after fermentation they are roasted on a hot iron plate. The tea is then smoked on bamboo racks over a fire made of green pine logs rich in resin. Souzhongs can be smoked to different degrees, and this is a moderately smoked example. Souzhong is a classic tea with a dedicated following.
