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. When Lapsang Souchong was first exported to Western European countries and became famous on the international markets - it was no doubt due to the distinct aroma and flavor.
