From Little Red Cup Tea Co.

Our Lapsang Souchong is amazing. We know, that’s a bold statement, and some will disagree. But Lapsang Souchong is a love it or hate it proposition, and we’ve given our hearts to this tea. This is one of our strongest teas, think bridge abutments or skyscraper foundations. This is our most pungent tea — we send it to you in a ziplock bag in addition to our regular packaging.

The black tea is redolent three distinct flavors at once — the black tea base, a hint of longyan (Dragon Eye, a Chinese tree fruit similar to lychee) and the pinewood smoke which is the tea’s most defining element.

I hope all of you are experiencing the same awesomely beautiful weather we are enjoying. Not a cloud in the sky. This morning I decided to completely forget all the stuff that I am supposed to be doing. Instead I got out my gorgeous Tivelasi teapot and filled it with Little Red Cup Lapsang Souchong. Grabbed the accompanying mug and a bowl of grits and parked myself on the front porch. It was so peaceful. No traffic. The sound of faint hammering across the road – the neighbors are building a barn for their horses. The sweet pine smoke from the tea along with the gentle warm breeze simply melted the stress away. The perfect early morning porch tea. Highly recommend you start your day the same way.

Unfortunately back to reality this afternoon.

I remember when smokey teas used to freak me out a little bit, but that was quite awhile back, and I’ve grown accustomed to them, and I enjoy them. I don’t drink them often, lets just say I go through phases with them, but in an effort to drink my way through my entire cupboard once a month (it will probably never happen, LOL, but every month I start off optimistically thinking that I can), I’m making more of an effort this week to drink a cup or 2 of each of my smokey black teas, this one included.

How does this one measure up? Well, I didn’t do any kind of comparison between this one & the other 4 in my collection, so for now I’ll just say that it’s tasty. It is definitely thick with pine smoke, but also has a sweetness too it, more of a fruit taste, as opposed to the caramelized brown sugar taste that I get with some, and I’m grateful that the tea is packaged within a ziplock bag, as well as the other packaging, because it’s deeply aromatic, as a lapsang should be, & I probably should move it into one of my many empty tins, but I love the picture on the front of little red cup’s package. Maybe I’ll cut the package up & attach it to the outside of a tin…
