  • Ingredients
      Black tea smoked with pine needles.

      Lapsang Souchong or Zhengshan Xiao Zhong, literally means "small plant from Lapu mountain". The amount of smokiness from roasting can be varied to produce a very smoky version (Tarry Souchong). Smoke houses, several stories high, are used for modern production. At the bottom, pine needles burn and are carefully controlled by the Master Smoker to enunciate the key notes of the tea without having the smoke overwhelm the entire character.
