Do Lapsang Tea Bags Have Caffeine

This is a smoked Black Tea of unparalleled character and charm. The fact that it undergoes a significant amount of processing means that it contains an equally significant amount of caffeine. Specifically, your morning cuppa will have about 45-mg of the stimulant per serving - more than enough to start your day the right way. But where do they come from? What is its story? 

Where Does Lapsang Tea Come From?

Originating from the Chinese Fujian Province in the southeast of the country, historians believe that Lapsang Souchong was the first Black Tea leaves ever created. Legend has it that a group of farmers, harassed by bandits wanting their crop, were forced to hasten production to prevent it from getting stolen. These workers did so by drying the leaves over pinewood fires, thereby creating a wholly unique infusion. 

How is Lapsang Souchong Tea Made?

Today, harvesting takes place in the second week of May before arriving at the factory for withering, which kickstarts oxidation. The process is later assisted by rolling, twisting, pressing and shaping the leaves to release their enzymes. Next is to halt oxidation by pan-firing the Tea in a hot iron pan. Finally, it is scattered into bamboo sieves and placed in a baking room to dry over pinewood fires. 

Biodegradable Lapsang Tea Bags

The idea of putting Tea in bags dates back to at least 1908. More recently, however, we’ve moved away from decades-old practices and introduced plastic free Lapsang Tea Bags to ensure the welfare of our environment. Not only are they 100% void of petrochemical plastics, but they are also fully biodegradable. The time has come to show you how to brew these
