Lapsang Souchong

Black

Description:

Zhengshan xiaozhong (aka Lapsang Souchong) is one of the most famous Chinese black teas. Large souchong leaves undergo a complex process of double smoking, where the leaves are first withered over a pine or cypress wood fire, fried, rolled and resmoked. The result is an incredibly distinctive and highly unique aroma filled with woody pine smoke and tobacco notes. With a surprisingly light body, an initial spicy kick transforms into a long, savoury finish with a slightly salty mouthfeel. Long, lingering smokiness defines this memorable brew which has a definite caffeine kick.

1 teaspoon per 200mls, brew 2-4 minutes in water at 100 degrees Celsius.
