Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong (Lapsang Souchong) - Smoked Wuyi Black Tea
The small, evenly sized, deep reddish-black dry leaves of this Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong (Lapsang Souchong) carry a moderate but distinctive aroma of pine smoke, due to its unique drying process that utilizes charcoal made from the wood of pine trees. The infusion is a perfectly clear, deep red-brown with a distinctively smoky and subtly fruity nose. In the cup, it presents an excellent balance between the very low astringency, fruity black tea base and the unmistakable smokiness that has made this tea a favorite in the West since the beginning of the black tea trade.
