Lapsang souchong is typically made with the larger, coarser leaves of the Wuyi (Bohea) cultivar. The Bohea cultivar has been bred to more readily absorb the smoke flavouring. The coarseness of the lower leaves also allow the smoke to more readily adhere to the leaf. The addition of the smoke flavour makes the lower concentration of aromatic compounds in these larger leaves, relative to the younger leaves and the bud, less relevant to the taste of the final product. Pinus taiwanensis is used for smoking, though other woods such as cedar and cypress are sometimes used as well.
