No. 174, Smoked Wuyi Lapsang



Created with a light hand, this elegant, smoked black tea issues forth gentle, smoldering embers of peat reminiscent of a fine, aged scotch. Oak-lined bookcases heaving under the weight ancient tomes would pair well with this excellent tea, as would the lingering scent of pipe tobacco. Sophisticated and poetic, this gentle-pine smoked tea makes one wish for a long weekend of rain, a comfortable chair and plenty of time.

Smoked Wuyi Lapsang 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 Smoked Wuyi Lapsang multiple times to experience the full expression of the leaves.
