no. 170, Wild Lapsang, Floral (non-smoked)

$32.00

 An unusual and stunning wild-harvested Wu Yi black tea, Lapsang Souchong (Zhengshan Xiaozhong) Floral, was created with the fragrant oolong cultivar, Huang Guan Yin. This unorthodox approach to black tea has resulted in ravishing floral expressions (without high florid tones). While most tea drinkers are familiar with the pine smoked Lapsang Souchong, these elegant, non-smoked leaves are rich with opulent notes of dried fruit and spice. 

Wild Lapsang, Floral is sourced from a small family garden in the Wu Yi mountains of Fujian. Very special and remarkably smooth. This tea is purchased in small quantities and is a limited edition selection. 

Brew Wild Lapsang, Floral multiple times to experience the full expression of the leaves.
