What is this?

I love lapsong souchong. I thought this would be a good approximation. Did someone forget to smoke the tea? Trying to get more flavor, I double the amount of leaves in my second pot--at best, wet socks. It became the most expensive addition I've ever made to my compost.

Campfire in a cup

My husband’s favorite tea. Exceptionally fragrant, smooth, smoky flavor that transports you to the outdoors and mountain vistas.

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.
