The soil naturally gives this tea a tarry character, which is enhanced by drying the leaves over a fire. The results give a smoky and sophisticated brew, perfect for food and cakes. With milk you can balance the strong taste.
Black tea is fully oxidized. That is, the oxidation process is allowed to stop on its own. After oxidation, the tea is dried. It is oxidation that makes the tea leaves dark. Lapsang is also placed over a fire so that the smoke adds flavor to the tea.
An organic product is produced in a way that takes the environment into account by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides. It's good for the planet, but also for the tea, the farmer and you. By buying organic teas, you support healthy and long-term tea production.
We are proud to be the largest Norwegian brand importer of organic tea. To be approved by Debio and use the definition Organic, not only must the ingredients be certified organic, but our own plant must also be certified by Debio and controlled by Mattsilynet.
In addition to import controls from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, we go beyond the requirements by also taking random samples for pesticides/pesticides and other pollutants.
It is important that tea is stored protected from air and light. That's why we sell all our teas packed in tight aluminum bags with a zip lock.
