Lapsang Souchong Black Tea originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, China. The Fukienese word "souchong" literally means "little variety" or subvariety. Lapsang Souchong has a high reputation outside of China, but it is viewed as "tea for Westerners" inside China

Brewing Guide: We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 225 ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and water temperature for subsequent brewing. If you like milk with your tea, add 10 to 15 ml of sweetened/plain dairy milk and stir.
