Here, the youngest shoots are not picked, but the Souchong leaf, mature and larger leaves from the lower regions of the tea bushes.

After fermentation, these leaves are placed in hot iron pans and roasted for a short time, after which the tea is smoked on resin-rich pine wood. The smoking period is determined by the variety (Lapsang Souchong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong, Lapsang Souchong Crocodile).
