China, Fujian Wuyi

Lapsang Souchong originated in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian, China. It translates to Middle Mountain Small Leaf Variety, and is known for its distinctive smoky flavor. The smoking process is rumoured to have been created by accident but has become a defining character. The region is surrounded by dense pine forests with heavy mists, perfect for quality tea production. The forests debris forms a beautiful fertilizer for the tea and the pine is used to smoke the leaves. Much like champagne, only tea produced in this region can be called Lapsang Souchong.
