Organic Bohea Lapsang Black Tea

有机武夷红茶

The Origin Story
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 our Bohea Lapsang a soft, lingering smokiness, making it an incredibly easy-to-slip-down and sophisticated after dinner tea.
China - Fujian

Fujian is home to some of the world's best oolongs, white and black teas

The steep, rocky mountains of Wuyi in Fujian are the home of this famous tea. Wuyi is renowned for producing what many would argue are the world's best oolong and black teas.

    Fabulous smoky tea for a rainy British afternoon...
    Lapsang has always been a favourite, with its peaty, smoky aroma redolent of an Islay malt. The Bohea is sublime - a gentle peatiness on the nose with a warming, rich flavour that dispels winter blues and makes you think of log fires and leather armchairs. Ideally leave a good five minutes to infuse. Perfect on its own, or with fruit cake and a slice of Cheshire cheese.
