A Lapsang Souchong, smoked black tea from China
Love it or leave it! With its robust, smoky aroma and peaty depth, it's no wonder lapsang souchong is prized by its adherents as the whisky of teas. This southern-Chinese specialty has a good smoking over wood fires to thank for its distinctive, full-bodied flavor.

My new favourite tea! Well balanced Lapsang great for the afternoon tea :)
Good smokey notes, I love it!
Holy smokes Batman! It's a smokey, smokey whiskey kind of tea, with a beautiful amber color. Did I mention smokey? Extremely bracing and strong - not for the faint of heart. With added milk it takes on an almost savory character. Great on its own but would probably be fantastic mixed into some English Breakfast tea to give it more character. Or any other tea, to be fair.
One of the more delicate Lapsang I've drunk, nevertheless very fleshy! A good start for someone who has not tried Lapsang before and likes peaty whisky!
I'm a big Lansang Souchong fan, and really enjoyed this tea. But I have to say I was hoping it would be a bit more full-bodied.
