Full Description

We proudly present you this aged smoked Lapsang Souchong tea from 2013. It has a chopped style that was popular for exportation back in 2013. It makes an interesting comparison to nowadays smoked Lapsang tea. It's also from our farmer Bei Bei Zhang's tea plantation located in Mu Su, which is the heart of the core production area Tong Mu Village in Wu Yi Mountain range.

Tong Mu Village has 12 production teams for Lapsang Souchong, and each team is composed of a few families that live in the Tong Mu village area. Ma Su is one of them and is located at elevation about 1200 meters. Bei Bei Zhang comes from a five generational family that owns a tea plantation and is still producing Lapsang Souchong, both traditional smoked style and unsmoked style in Ma Su. After our visit to Bei Bei's family tea plantation in Ma Su this year and witnessing the entire production process, we are now able to bring this crown jewel of Chinese black tea to you!

Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong or Lapsang Souchong is more than just the world's first black tea. Besides a rich history behind it, this tea itself is a cultural heritage of China, since the traditional smoked style Lapsang tea has to be 100% handmade by burning the Horsetail pine wood in a special architecture called Qing Lou (another Chinese cultural heritage).
