Lapsang Souchong is a classic Tea specialty from China. Its memorable smoke aroma is really special.
When you open the tea caddy from Lapsang Souchong you pour in intense smoky odor contrary to the initially reminiscent of smoked ham and smoked dark chocolate.
This smoke tea is famous. Nice Winston Churchill should have drunk him regularly while enjoying his cigars. The smoky aromas of cigars and tea obviously seem to harmonize very well.
Also in the TV series "The Mentalist" the protagonist Patrick Jane is very enthusiastic about this tea.
Real Lapsang Souchong, how we offer it comes from Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province in China. It consists of the leaves of the tea plant, which are cut up a little.
Taste of Lapsang Souchong
Despite its strong aroma of smoked pine, spruce or fir, the taste of the tea is much sweeter. It's more like smoked dark chocolate with a bit of cooked fruit sweetness. The aftertaste leaves a smoky and honeyed note in your throat.
Tasting notes from Rika, our dear tea lover:
"As the name suggests, the tea smells smoky and spicy like incense sticks, with sweet and floral notes of clove and cardamom."
“The taste is also dominated by the sweetish, spicy smoky note, which fills the palate and is reminiscent of Indian spices. It is followed by a pleasant sweetness that stays on the tongue for a long time. "
