Taste


This is a superior leaf Lapsang Souchong offering a crisp character with the remarkable and heady aroma of an oak fire. A unique and distinctive tea sometimes regarded as an acquired taste it is is bright with reddish tints. This smoked tea has a distinctive flavour sometimes referred to as tarry, and is a special tea from Fujian province of China. Lapsang Souchong tea is generally consumed with sugar or milk.


Facts


The word "souchong" means sub-variety and this is a sub-variety of other black teas from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian. The leaves are first withered over fires of pine or cypress wood. After pan-frying and rolling, they are pressed into wooden barrels and covered with cloth to ferment until they give off a pleasant fragrance. The leaves are fired again and rolled into taut strips. They are then placed in bamboo baskets and hung on wooden racks over smoking pine fires to dry and absorb the smoke flavour. The finished thick, glossy, black strips produce a dark red beverage with a unique aroma and taste.
