This black tea is produced in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province, China. The distinctive smoky taste and aroma is achieved during the drying process in which the tea leaves are placed on panels above tamarack wood fires. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle portrayed his Sherlock Holmes character as being the consummate Lapsang Souchong aficionado. Although not particularly approachable by newly-made tea drinkers, we've found this tea to be an acquired taste that soon becomes a craving that only fine quality Lapsang Souchong can satiate.
