From Britannia Teas and Gifts

A smooth, crisp character and intense flavour with the remarkable and heady aroma of pine and oak wood fire. Cup tends to be bright with reddish hues. Inhale the smoky aroma and absorb the mysteries of its origins.

1.5 tsp for 250mL, boiling water, 4-minute steep.

I love lapsang souchong and Carvan teas. Adore them. I drink them a lot when the weather turns cold, though on occasion I’ll take hot cup of lapsang on a hot summer day and get serious refreshment. (It just seems counter-intuitive to drink hot smoky tea on a hot day. Any hot tea on a hot day will help you cool down, of course.) This lapsang from my local indie shop is, as the copy promises, smooth and crisp. The smokiness is almost a bit salty. The tea does not gett bitter.

The main difference I find between lapsang and Caravan teas is the degree of smoke (natch) and the body. Lapsangs tend to be light-bodied, Caravans a little heavier. I am actually in the mood for a Caravan this morning, I’ve discovered, but I am still loving this lapsang.
