From English Tea Store

Our Lapsang Souchong China Black Tea delivers a smoked and distinctive flavor, with the heady aroma of an oak fire.

This tea originates from Fujian province. The Fukienese word ‘souchong’ means sub-variety – that is a sub-variety of other black teas from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian. When Lapsang Souchong was first exported to western European countries and became famous on the international markets, it was no doubt due to the distinct aroma and flavor.

I still have to cook…Instead I’ve just placed 3 tea orders, LOL!
I guess I’d better get away from my computer & get my axx in the kitchen!


Mmmmm. What did the man think of the tea infused food?


Oh he loved it. :) a hit overall


Yum. I have some chicken that I just threw in the freezer; maybe I’ll have to bring it back out and try something like this. Although, horror, I may actually not have enough straight lapsang to do something like this!

TeaboxB! I’ve had worse smoky teas but I’ve had better. The scent is heavy the flavor is the mid level of smoky. The flavor isn’t bad. Kind of like a BBQ. The black tea is mid-strength. Not too much to say! A good one to try if you’re looking to try lapsang for the first time, but I really like Zen tea life’s blend.

As some of you may be aware, I tend to be a bit nervous when it comes to smoky teas, but I’m coming around to the point where I can say that I like them now, so long as they’re brewed properly.

This has a strong smoky note with caramel-y undertones. Sweet yet rich and robust. An enjoyable Lapsang Souchong.

My humans are getting tricky. They added a spoonful of Lapsang Souchong to Assam. Smoky. Malty. Yummy!
