Our Premium Lapsang Souchong is the best grade to come from the place of origin of this great tea, Tong Mu Guan in Xing Village, or simply known as Bohea. Many had drank this tea before but only a handful have tried the best authentic Zheng Shan Xiao zhong from the original farm. Highly recommended!
Zheng Shan means 'Original Mountain' and only tea leaves picked from Wuyi harvest area can be called as 'Zheng Shan'. These dark pine needle-smoked tea leaves have a subtle hint of a very sweet fruit in China called 'longan'. A highly recommended black tea by those of us at Golden Teahouse. Newcomers to Chinese tea are often served this variety.
*Please note that due to new government regulations, the smoking process is now somewhat restricted due to overuse of pine trees required. This mostly means that the tea's smokiness is a lot more subtle than some people might be accustomed to. Some of us here are actually enjoying the new batches far more than the old. Also the less intense smoked aroma makes the tea pair very nicely with milk
