Traditional smoked lapsang for the first time on our e-shop.
Nowadays this tea is a rarity. There are several reasons for this – Tong Mu Guan National Park is one of the most iconic places in all of China. At the same time, the government has restricted the harvesting of pine wood, which is used to smoke this tea in and around this place. Because of over-harvesting. Nowadays, there are only a few producers who can produce this tea. Our tea is made from the original Da Chi Gan cultivar. From around the village of Gua Duan.
The tea is sensorially in its infancy and its distinctive smoky profile is slowly beginning to round out while showing us great potential for aging and long archiving.
