Bold, assertive, full-bodied with a dominantly smoky, earthy taste. The Loose Tea Experience: For true tea lovers, nothing compares to the experience of the aroma and flavor of loose leaf tea. Since these leaves aren’t constrained by a pre-measured steeping bag, your palate is your guide to full-flavored enjoyment. And making the perfect cup of tea starts with a quality filtered or spring water. In China’s Fujian Province, tea artisans wither then dry tea leaves in bamboo baskets over smoking cypress or pine wood fires to create its distinctive campfire flavor. We’re proud of this Lapsang Souchong loose leaf tea and we hope you’ll agree. Remember, your satisfaction is always guaranteed with Puripan Tea Garden’s brand products.

Jug #2: Black Teas
So, I had this Lapsang in an old Peet’s tin… I guessing it’s from Puripan?
In any case, that stuff’s pretty good iced…
and in a moment of cRaZiNeSs, I decided to mix it with some other French tea – one of those flowery ones, what with sunflower and cornflower petals, flavored with strawberry and rhubarb, and a mix of Chinese and Sri Lankan teas – called Jardin Bleu, by Dammann Freres.
The result? Not bad! Well, I haven’t tried it officially cold, but from my taste-testing, it’s not as much of an atrocity as it could have been. We’ll see in the morning, perhaps.
Using a very large teapot for this, so two potfuls should about do a gallon. I might have to top it off with something special, but we’ll see.
Kind of considering putting sugar in this one… but mostly not.
Now for jug #3, I’m thinking herbal…
I wanted to do rooibos, but I’m pretty sure I’m out.
Was thinking, then, either Yerba Mate (which I have in excess), or Corn and Barley to make a refreshing Korean-style mix….
Refreshment, or energy?
Maybe energy… But I know one of my directors is on a no-caffeine fix… do you think this would be okay for him? I don’t know…
