Rare Pantry: Forbidden Forest Lapsang Souchong Tea

Sale price$30.00


To create this marvelous, smoky tea expression, ancient downed pine trees are piled deep in the forest and burned. The tea leaves are then hung above the fire and allowed to absorb the aroma. The end result is a full-bodied and robust tea with smoky sweet flavor.
