 Details: Lapsangs comes from The Wuyi Mountains (Wuyi Shan) in the northeastern part of Fujian Province. This is where black teas were first developed (called Bohea). In the steeply forested mountains, wood was plentiful, so it came naturally to smoke tea like bacon. The leaves were slowly withered to create a complex tea, then the leaves were slowly dried in rooms with a smoky fire below.
 Dry Leaves: Small leaves that are a dull jet black, with no golden tips.
 Liquor: Orange brown caramel liquor.
 Aroma: A heady mixture of pine, hardwood smoke, fruit, and spice.
 Flavors: Pine smoke with some dark stone fruit.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-to-full-bodied
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212ยบ
