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.

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 !

Brewing Instructions

The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.

It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.

It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
