China / Camellia sinensis
Lapsang Souchong is a robust, intense pine-smoked tea from Fujian province of China. Deep aromas of smoke reveal themselves in a very strong cup. This tea is also used in cooking as either a strong infusion for a sauce or as a smoking agent in the bottom of a dry wok and is a key ingredient in our Asian Tea Rub and Middle Eastern Tea Rub.
