So Smoky!

The tea seems really good and high quality, but it's too smoky for me. It's only the second smoky tea I've had, so maybe it's just not for me.

Camp at home with Zheng Shan

Excellent tea . Tastes exactly as described, particularly "campfire" . I like it strong so I use more than usual but also discovered that a second steeping is not what I'd like . Therefore I'd rather start with fresh leaves for my second cup.

Excellent. Made my other smoked tea smell and taste artificially enhanced by comparison. I tossed that; I'm a convert.

Hello old friend, long time no drink

This is a tea that reminds me of home in England. Very rich, smoky flavor that steeps pretty dark with not a lot of time. Robust and strong but not bitter, great for a wake up drink or later afternoon pickup. Fulling recommend and the order and delivery was on time and perfect, definitely will order again.

Zheng Shan

Chinese Black Tea

The original Lapsang, the most sought after smoked tea in all of China. Delicate and wiry black tea leaves are smoked with pine boughs for a complex and full yet smooth experience.

Zhejiang Province

Zhejiang Province is located in Eastern China, directly south of Shanghai and Jiangsu Province. These three areas made up a region known in earlier times as the "Land of Fish and Rice". Today, Zhejiang still holds up its end of the bargain as home to China's largest fishery and as one of the largest food producers, along with leading in tea production. The tea used in Zheng Shan is harvested in the spring and then smoked in the summer.
