The Smoked Lapsang Souchong that we have chosen is not over bearing, but still offers a delcious slightly smokey taste. It has a nice peaty that may remind one of whiskey or scotch. It is a rich tea and well balanced.
More about Smoked Lapsang Souchong tea:
Lapsang Souchong Black Tea originates from the Tongmu Village, Wuyi Mountain in Fujian, China. The Fukienese word ‘souchong’ literally means ‘little variety’ or subvariety. Due to its smoky aroma, many people assume that it tastes bitter. However ViconyTeas’s Lapsang Souchong Black Tea is not bitter at all. Sometimes the poor quality Lapsang Souchong even gives a sour after taste. Our Lapsang Souchong Black Tea gives a strong dried Longan aroma, smooth drinking feeling and a slight stimulation when it passes though our throat thanks to the amber.
The premium Lapsang Souchong Black Tea is made by the historic and genuine manufacturer, sticking to the traditional method used until today. The tea is made with tealeaves harvested from the semi-wild tea bushes growing in Tong Mu Guan, an area seen as the core lapsang Souchong producing region as well as a national nature reserve, through the crucial drying process using smoldering pine fire instead of adding flavors commonly found in most of Lapsang Souchong.
