Black Tea Flavoured

All teas are made from leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant. Black teas are processed in two ways, CTC (Crush, Tear, Curl) or by the orthodox method. The CTC method cuts the leaves into small pieces known as fannings or dust, that are commonly used in tea bags. Orthodox processing is done either by machines or by hand. Hand processing is used for high quality teas. Leaves are fully oxidized under controlled temperature and humidity. The level of oxidation determines the type of the tea; with fully oxidized becoming black tea, low oxidized becoming green tea, and partially oxidized becoming oolong tea. There are four grades of black tea. Whole-leaf teas are the highest quality, and are graded as "orange pekoe." After the whole-leaf teas, the scale degrades to "broken orange pekoe", fannings, then dusts. Whole-leaf teas are the most valuable, especially if they contain leaf tips. Broken leaves are sold as medium-grade loose teas. Fannings and dusts are used in bagged teas because the greater surface area of the many particles allows for a fast, complete diffusion of the tea into the water. Whole leaf tea requires a longer brewing time because of the smaller leaf surface exposed to the water.

    China, Fujian Province

    China Black Tea. Fujian Lapsang Souchong. SBOPF (Special Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings). A superior leaf Lapsang Souchong offering a crisp character with the remarkable and heady aroma of an oak fire. Certainly a unique tea. Tending bright with reddish hues. This special smoked tea has a distinctive flavor sometimes referred to as tarry, and is a special tea from Fujian province. The Fukienese word ‘souchong’ means sub variety - that is a sub variety of other black teas from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian. During production the leaves are first withered over fires of pine or cypress wood. After further production the leaves are fired again and rolled into taut strips. Then they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung on wooden racks over smoking pine fires to dry and absorb the smoke flavour. It is generally consumed with sugar or milk. Depending upon one’s palate the taste can be light and intriguing or it can be heavy and overpowering. Lapsang Souchong is best described as an acquired taste.

    Bring water to a boil. 1 tsp per 6 oz cup. Infuse for 3-7 minutes.

    Contains Caffeine.
