Lapsang Souchong Tea
A black Chinese tea with a unique aroma and taste. Bristol Twenty Lapsang Souchong tea is naturally smoky in flavour, this characteristic is enhanced by drying the leaves over wood fires during the production process.
This unique organic black tea is dried over pinewood, giving it a heavily smoky aroma and a deep, rich liquor. The tea leaves are first withered over pine root fires, then panfried, rolled and oxidized. The leaves are finally placed in bamboo baskets and hung on wooden racks over smoking pinewood fires to dry and absorb the smoke.
A great partner for smoked fish, it also goes very well with chocolate. Serve without milk.
Rory’s Tasting Notes:
Robust, malty and sweet tea blend with traditional spices gives a pleasant kick. Great with milk and sugar or honey.
