Lapsang Souchoung is a mature, broad leaf tea from the Wuyi Mountain area of eastern China known primarily for being bathed in pine smoke as a part of its processing. The result is a silky, luxurious, unapologetically dense profile which makes the tea one of the most popular of the region.
This ferment expresses lapsang’s characteristic smokey profile with nuanced tones of connifer, peat, sorghum, and produces a round lactic finish which makes this savory brew peculiarly craveable.
Lapsang Souchoung pairs excellently with cereal grains, wild fungi, bloody steaks, or anything that would pair nicely with a stiff plug of scotch.
Serve at your favorite red wine temperature - preferably on a bear-skin rug or vegan alternative.

Smokiness is nice, but wish it was more sour!
