Lapsang SouchongClassic Smoked Tea
From Tong Mu, the original Lapsang Souchong tea village, a gentle smokiness overlays the base tea flavour that is reminiscent of dried lychee. Very far removed indeed from the commercial lapsangs usually available to buy in the west.
Very low stock
Origin: Tong Mu Village, Wuyi Mountains, Fujian Province
Harvest: Spring 2018
This LPS is far removed from your typical, very heavily smoked version, which the Chinese normally sell on the export market. This version, they'd normally keep for themselves, and it's not hard to tell why – you can actually taste the rather gorgeous base tea, which we are also selling (it is a slightly higher grade, link below).
Unusually for a black tea, you can also reinfuse this one several times.
For an interesting comparison, check out our Unsmoked Lapsang Souchong, made in the same garden from higher quality leaves.
Reinfuse, increasing the brewing time slightly each time.
Adapt the leaf quantity, infusion time and temperature to suit your personal preference.
