ORIGIN

“Bohea Souchong is superior to ginseng soup!”
- The British tea connoisseur Norton
“I feel my heart become so sympathetic, That I must have recourse to black Bohea…….”
- Don Juan, by Lord Byron (1788-1824)
Bohea Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong) is produced exclusively from its origin in the Bohea mountains. Instead of usual large leave camelia sine-sis black tea, this exclusive black tea is of small leave (Souchong the English word comes from the local Chinese dialect ”xiao zhong小种)”which means small leave type.
All the secret lies in its special process of combining natural smoke from the local pine trees into its oxidization procedure!
Our selection Zhengshan Bohea Souchong black tea is a Chinese government’s protected ”origin of production” product, also certificated by OCIA of the USA, and BCS of Germany and JONA of Japan.

 


COLOR, TASTE, AROMA

It has thick leaves and a smooth black colour. After steeping the tea, it turns deep red with a long lasting aroma of pine smoke. Its mellow taste has the flavour of longan soup. Add milk and the tea keeps the same aroma but begins to have the appearance of syrup and a more brilliant colour.
