Black Tea

Although widely known in the West as black tea, the Chinese refer to this drink as red tea. By either name, this tea is the most popular in the world. Production requires complete oxidation to bring out the tea's complex and deeply fragrant notes.


Lapsan Wuyi Mtn Black from Fujian Province


Brewing guidelines:

5-6 grams at a time; the first several infusions are at 90C (194F) for one minute; gradually increase steeping time for subsequent infusions.


This lot of tea was grown at high elevation in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province. Some consider this region the home of black tea. To maintain their natural purity, our Lapsan Wuyi Mountain teas are not blended with lesser teas from other regions, as is the custom. The tea is created according to the traditional practice of first withering and rolling the leaves over fire, then lightly smoking them in bamboo trays. Because older plants are harvested and more care is taken in the smoking process, this tea is unusually subtle and refined.
