正山堂茶业 武夷山桐木关 正山小种野茶100克 特级红茶
ZST Lapsang Souchong / Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong Black Tea (100 g/TIN)
The name Lapsang Souchong came from Wuyi Rock Tea... Its name was recorded as early as the year 1734 when the name Souchong or Xiao-Zhong referred to the best quality tea trees grown at the rocky area of Wuyi mountain which was used to produce oolong tea.
The smoky aroma is produced from burning pine wood that enters the processing building through the flue, allowing the smoky flavor to permeate through the small gaps between the bamboo in which the tea is stored. ... Made in this way, the Lapsang Souchong black tea takes on a distinctive smoky scent both on its dry tea and tea liquid.
Lapsang souchong was first created in 1646, as civilians in the Wuyi Mountain areas fled from Qing soldiers who were advancing through the area on their Manchu unification campaign against the Southern Ming. Before they fled, to avoid spoilage of newly plucked leaves, batches were quickly dried over pinewood fire and buried in sacks. Afterward, the tea leaves were shipped and sold to the Dutch traders. At the time, the months-long journey from China to Europe necessitated preservation methods and the partial oxidation of this Wuyi tea, an oolong tea graded as bohea or souchong, was better able to preserve its quality. The smoky souchong tea became popular.
