Zheng Shan Black

4.3 star rating 12 Reviews

Zheng Shan is the mountain high up in the NW corner of Fujian Province. It is famous for its teas, and us, in the West, have mispronounced it for over a century. It is often called Lapsang. This black tea thus looks like the famous Lapsang Souchong, but it hasnot been finished over smoky pine wood. So the sweetness and body are front and center for you to enjoy.
