Not a bad flavour, but incredibly incredibly weak … you have to steep for more than five minutes to get any colour (or flavour) in it at all … they really need to strengthen this tea up a bit
Zhengshan xiaozhong (aka Lapsang Souchong) is one of the most famous Chinese black teas. Large souchong leaves undergo a complex process of double smoking, where the leaves are first withered over a pine or cypress wood fire, fried, rolled and resmoked. The result is an incredibly distinctive and highly unique aroma filled with woody pine smoke and tobacco notes. With a surprisingly light body, an initial spicy kick transforms into a long, savoury finish with a slightly salty mouthfeel. Long, lingering smokiness defines this memorable brew which has a definite caffeine kick.
