I love making Mugi Cha during the summer, it’s very refreshing when the you can’t get away from the heat.

This is the first Lapsang Souchong I’ve ever purchased and the name itself is a interesting ear-worm. I’m still not familiar on a perfect brew temp so the first time I tried it I did it wrong and put me off. The smell itself was interesting; a nice earthy wood-burning scent that reminds me of smoking meats in a smoker. The first time I tried it was like a punch to the face I brewed it so much that it tasted salty! The second time I did some researched and steeped it for less time and it came out better then expected. This won’t be the last time I’ll try it there are probably better brands out there. Did I mention this makes me fear that the smell of Lapsang Souchong will permeate to my other teas?

I really love this tea I’d drink it all but all I have is one box. The lavender is really treat and isn’t overpowering as I thought it would be.

So I didn’t write the instructions on how to brew this so here it is!
-In a saucepan fill how many cups you’d like to prepare
-Boil and add 1 TSP per cup boiling
-Boil tea for 5 minutes
-Add Sugar and Milk to taste
-Bring back to a low simmer
-Strain and Enjoy!
I also combine Shah’s Original Tea Masala 1/4tsp per cup with the black tea and add it to the boiling water to make Chai tea it’s so delicious.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 45 sec

I love this boiler, I have the 4 Liter version and it’s absolutely amazing it’s one of the best items I could ever invest in. Keeps water hot all day and has 4 temperature settings including a delay timer that I always use before I go to bed. I’ve used it for more than just tea, I use it for my pour over coffee and ramen noodles to instant potatoes!
