From Twinings

A strong, golden tea with a very distinctive smoked character.

Lapsang Souchong tea comes from China’s Fujian Province and Taiwan. The unique flavour of Lapsang Souchong is produced by lying the leaves out on bamboo trays and allowing smoke from pinewood to permeate through them. Twinings Lapsang Souchong is an adventurous tea with a unique smoke flavour and a dark rich colour. Drink with or without milk.

This is an assertive tea that’s perfect for taking the chill off a wintry evening. I find that a good white cheddar makes a nice accompaniment.

As a die-hard, longtime coffee drinker who is just now beginning to explore the world of teas, I really enjoy having the Lapsang Souchong as my first cup of the day. Its smokiness and dark richness make it a fine coffee substitute.

Great smokey flavor. Makes me think of the smoke from a camp fire. I would describe it as camping in your mouth…if you get what I mean. Good if you’re in the mood for an earthy, woodsy tasting tea. Could be a little strong and distinct if you’re looking for something with a little more subtlety.
