From Dammann Freres

Smoked tea from China
To Westerners, this is the Chinese tea, whilst to the Chinese this is a foreigner’s tea. From either perspective its pungent smoky flavour has become a classic, one which makes a great accompaniment to savoury dishes. (Brewing time: 3 to 5 minutes).

My eldest daughter spent a few days touring Europe while we were in Ireland and she brought this back for my youngest daughter. I believe she bought it in Amsterdam. I don’t now how she finds these tea shops that sell such nice teas, but she always does.

A couple of years ago, she brought us Lapsang Souchong Crocodile by Dammann Freres. This is definitely lighter on the smoke and has a lighter feel to the base, perhaps just because the smoke level is different.

This is very smooth and what I would consider a middle ground Lapsang – not as light as a smokey Keemun but far from tarry. It is a very pleasant Lapsang and we used it as our breakfast tea.
