An Impressive lapsang souchong tea a complex smoke aroma in smell and taste a high quality tea for the bold tea lover
I blend it with English Breakfast or Russian Caravan in order to have a more delicate flavour: it's really wonderful
This is a very complex Lapsang Souchong and can provide very different drinks when changing only the brew time. Short brewing gives a more smoky, thinner tea (along the lines of a Pu-erh, but very smoky) - while longer brewing releases the oily mouth-feel and reduced smoky flavours. I drink it either with or without milk. A long brew, quite strong, with a dash of milk reminds me of steam locomotive workshops!
Coffee is normally my drink. I always refuse tea as a drink. However my wife suggested I gave this blend a try. The flavour is nothing like I was expecting. To my a lovely earthy flavour and I am now hooked. It's a refreshing change from my normal coffee. Love it.
I tried this and was not a fan, Tasted like burnt food, :( You know.. you burn something and think, Oh well I can eat around it, But then find out the food has that burnt taste to it..
