Lapsang Souchong

END OF LINE - ONCE ITS GONE ITS GONE

There is nothing subtle about this robust black tea with a smoky flavour similar to a Islay malt whisky. There seem to be plenty of stories how this unique tea flavour came to be. Our favourite is that the culprit was trying to dry their tea fast over an open fire and accidental smoking occurred. A nice mistake.

Ingredients: Chinese black tea.

A little goes a long way

Although I find this Lapsang Souchong a little extreme to use by itself, I find that it can complete the perfect cup of tea for after a meal by substituting about one-third of Lapsang Souchong to my usual measure of tea. The result is a deep, satisfying flavour akin to a smoky whisky as a digestif. Excellent.

Lapsing Souchong

Got a bargain here with the end of line Lapsang. I have been an aficionado of Lapsang for getting on 50 years and finding a really good leaf variety often proves difficult. This one has a great flavour with proper big leaves !
