Lapsang Souchong is a Chinese tea specialty, a so-called smoke tea. The big black tea leaves are smoked and roasted. This gives Lapsang Souchong the characteristic, strong smoke flavor, reminiscent of campfires, that superimposes on the actual tea taste. Lapsang Souchong does not become bitter even during longer brewing times, so it is suitable for use in a samovar. It was Sir Winston Churchill's favorite tea.
This tin is a great gift, a beautiful decoration and can be refilled.
