A UNESCO World Heritage site is home to the garden and processing plant where this incredible tea is created. Legend or not, history says a simple tea farmer had the good fortune to sell a large lot of tea to England and then the awful misfortune to have a huge fire in is plant after the tea was already made. Unable to feed his family with the loss of his entire crop he decided to ship the “damaged” tea for which he had already been paid, feeling very bad knowing it would surly be his only shipment abroad. However to his surprise his tea received such praise and HUGE reorders that he was forced to learn how to “recreate” this new found treasure. Today we start with gardens in high mountains, fresh flowing waterfalls and blue skies in which to grow, thanks to the areas protection. Next they smoke finished leaves over a pine fire to add to the final aroma and flavor unique to this area of Lapsang Souchong teas.
