Loose-leaf black tea with large, very dark leavesView Full Resolution

This tea, Lapsang Souchong, is usually more easily distinguished by its characteristic smoky aroma than the appearance of its leaf. The main feature of the leaves to look for is that, being a souchong, it has larger leaves than is typical, especially among Chinese teas produced from the smaller-leaved cultivar of tea plant.
