China Lapsang Souchong Black Tea

China Lapsang Souchong Black Tea

(2 Ratings)

When plucking this tea, not the youngest leaves and the bud are taken, but the Souchong leaf: riper, larger leaves from the lower parts of the tea bushes. After fermentation, these leaves are put on hot iron pans or iron plates and roasted for a short time, and then the tea is smoked over pine woods. The smoking time is determined for each type separately (Lapsang Souchong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong or Lapsang Souchong Crocodile). Our Lapsang Souchong has a large, open, slightly grayish to black leaf with a sharp note of smoke. The taste is smoky and spicy.

      Beautiful smoky notes and flavor reminding me of camping and sitting around a campfire to stay warm :-)Not too strong with the smokiness. The best China Lapsang Souchong I have tasted.

      This tea is a little different, with a noted smoked smell. This particular mix does not have as strong an aroma as other Lapsang Souchongs that I've had, but it keeps its distinctive taste through brewing. Top quality!
