Black Tea - Lapsang Souchong Butterfly

Black Iron Tea Traders

Cultivated in the Fujian Province in China, this tea stands out for its distinct smoky undertones. The smoky flavor is achieved after a long process where the leaves are withered over fires of pine or cyprus wood. The tea is then pan-fried, rolled, pressed, and fermented. Finally, the tea is fired again and then placed in bamboo baskets over smoking pine fires to dry and capture maximum smoky flavor.
