The difference between Bohea and commercial Lapsang is enormous, perhaps similar to the distinction between mass-produced whiskies and slowly made, properly aged, artisan malts.
Drying the leaves slowly over barkless pine wood fires gives Wuyi Bohea soft, lingering smokiness, making it an incredibly easy-to-slip-down and sophisticated after dinner tea.

Appearance: Dusky, dark, cinder-black twists of whole leaf
Infusion: Surprisingly pale for such a dark tea: deep hazel-yellow with golden rim
Aroma: Calm, serene and reassuringly smoky: the smell of warm sauna pine. Subtle and haunting
Taste: Palate Soft, gently smoky, warm yet refreshing, too, with a supple, creamy, liquorice-root finish.
