From Rare Tea Cellar

Our Forbidden Forest Lapsang Souchong aged in Willet Rye Barrels for 6-9 months to create a unique mixture of smoky and sweet notes in this incredible infusion. Ancient downed pine trees are piled deep in the forest and used to smoke this amazing tea expression. The tea is literally hung above the fire and allowed to absorb the aroma. Amazing after a meal.


Origin: Anhui, China

There are certain words that will instantly trigger my interest. Five of them are “whiskey”, “barrel-aged”, and “Lapsang Souchong”. When combined…my head explodes. No, not literally, that’d be messy.

I had mused on what a whiskey’d Lapsang would taste like. There was no doubt that I’d enjoy it…but I didn’t know how much. It seemed perfect. Well, the first time I tried it, it almost was. Almost. Something was missing. Then I decided to steep the heck out of it for five minutes. Holy wow…flavor country dialed up to eleven.

Oddly enough, in and around the time I tried it the perfect way, I was gearing up to see The Great Gatsby. Naturally, I had to draw parallels between that flavorful experience and the movie I just watched because…well…science.

Hello, I share your interest in Rare Tea Cellar’s barrel-aged tea, SST’s No. 01 Rogue Whiskey Barrel, and TeaVivre’s Premium Keemun Hao Ya to name a few. Have you also tried Vintage TeaWorks? Recently, I contacted you on your website: seeking a recommendation. Thank you.
