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.

Sipdown! Because we are cooking with tea tonight! Oh yeah!on the menu some braised chicken with smokey tea, maple, onions, garlic, sugar, tomatoes with a side of rice…. Hpefully this turns out ok :)

Terri HarpLady

I have a recipe I made awhile back for a whole chicken marinated in lapsang with asian spices & then baked. It was pretty tasty!

Lala

Sounds delicious!

Sil

sounds delicious too terri!

Terri HarpLady

Yours sounds tasty too!

Indigobloom

mmmmm lapsang is my fave tea to cook with!

Sil

so verdict? REALLLLLYYYYY tasty dinner tonight :)

Terri HarpLady

Yay!!
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!

Indigobloom

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

Sil

Oh he loved it. :) a hit overall

Kittenna

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!

teatortoise

I keep seeing “sip-down.” What does that mean?

Sil

sometimes folks celebrate finishing up a tea and getting to remove it from their cupboard. :)

teatortoise

Oh, I see. It’s sort of sad to me.

Sil

only when your cupboard is small lol for me it’s a victory when my cupboard gets huge… it means less tea in my cupboard and one step closer to being able to place an order for new teas! :)

teatortoise

That makes sense. For people that can’t afford too many, it means having to wait awhile before having a new tea to replace it. So, I miss that tea for awhile.

teatortoise

I’m sure if you have a big enough collection, it doesn’t feel that way. :)

Terri HarpLady

Sip downs are sad when it’s a tea you have really loved & you’re drinking the very last cup..,sigh…but once you’ve done a few tea trades and you have a big pile (or 2 or 3) of samples that you’re best friend in Canada sent to you, sip downs feel like a glorious accomplishment, right Sil? ;)

Sil

haha yes terri!

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.

Backlog:

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.

Went through so many little pouches of this that I bought a giant amount and now I’m afraid I’ll never get through it. Oh well. Every once in a while I get the urge for Lasang and this fits the bill nicely. A strong smoky scent and a very light tasting tea.

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