DESCRIPTION

Organic Lapsang Souchong Tea is a famous tea from China’s Anhui Province is made by drying robust black tea over pine wood smoke. The flavor of pinewood smoke nicely complements the sweet silkiness of the black tea.

An undertone of sweetness and a light but a lingering astringent finish makes Lapsang Souchong tea very enjoyable. Very smooth.

From an organic tea garden.

The initial aroma of the

The initial aroma of the leaves before brewing had potent smokiness similar to hickory, it was almost offensive. Once steeped,the smokiness became much more subtle ans pleasing. Upon sipping,the tea is overall hearty,smooth,and enjoyable,although not on my list of must-haves. It seems to be missing that bit of bitterness and astringency I like, perhaps I didn't brew it long enough. This was the first black tea I have explored outside orange pekoe,english and irish breakfast,which I am more familiar with. I will certainly keep exploring new styles of tea!
