    Product Description
    Lapsang Souchong, Loose tea 3 oz. by Lana's is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian. It is sometimes referred to as smoked tea or Russian Caravan tea. Lapsang is distinctive from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavor.

    The name in Fukienese means "smokey variety" or more correctly "smokey sub-variety." Lapsang souchong is a member of the Wuyi Bohea family of teas. The story goes that the tea was created during the Qing era when the passage of armies delayed the annual drying of the tea leaves in the Wuyi hills. Eager to satisfy demand, the tea producers sped up the drying process by having their workers dry the tea leaves over fires made from local pines.

    • use one teaspoon of tea per 6 ounces of water;
    • brewing: boiling water, 5 minutes;
    • smoked black tea;
    • caffeinated.

    5 of 5 Rapid Delivery May 29, 2018
    Reviewer: Charles Frass from Central Square, NY United States  
    This product and the other teas in this order were securely package and delivered in TWO days.
    Not a surprise since Lana's and I are located in the same state.  All of the teas, except one, were excellent.  The one tea was smoked and I found I did  not care for it. I do enjoy smoked meats! Finally, I appreciate the personal touch on my orders.

    5 of 5 So Lovely May 20, 2018
    Reviewer: Karen Ager from West Henrietta, NY United States  
    I cannot review the products I purchased online because they are gifts. A friend recently visited your lovely place and absolutely raves about her experience there. I decided to surprise her for her birthday next month by buying items for sale at your shop. I know she will be thrilled to relive the taste of her visit with you.

    My experience as a shopper was excellent. It seemed like I got the items in the mail before I hit the submit order button!! Your service encourages me to shop online with you again.

    Kind regards,

    I believe this is the fourth or fifth purchase I've made from the Little House and continue to be a very satisfied customer.  I've purchased several brands of Lapsan Souchong and have found Lana's the best of the best.  The smoky smell and flavor are wonderful.
