From white2tea

Also referred to as Zhengshan Xiaozhong and Lapsang Souchong, this is a classic black tea from Wuyi in Fujian province.

Our Smoked Lapsang uses a method of pine smoking that will resonate strongly with peated whisky lovers. The smoke lays heavy atop the deeper flavors of the tea which unfold over the course of many steeps. A rich and bold tea with an intense profile.

Each purchase is for 25g of tea.

Some of the best smoky lapsang I’ve ever had.
I really enjoy Lapsang Souchong – I have to be in the mood for it, but when I’m in the mood for it I CRAVE it.
This Lapsang is not too smoky; you can taste the leaf along with the smoke – providing a complex flavor that has not been overpowered. Well done.

Gongfu!

I’m finishing the sample packet from the Lapsang sub box in August, but I still have a larger bag of last year’s harvest of this tea that I’ve not worked through yet. So not a “real” sipdown.

I had this on on the weekend with some cornbread and super funky St. Agur blue cheese. I love the pairing of blue cheese and Lapsang Souchong so much; two extremely polarizing and insanely strong flavour profiles coming together into one explosion of flavour!! In particular, this blue cheese is so creamy that the higher fat softens the edge/astringency of the Lapsang, letting me reeaaalllyyy push my steep times long to get as much smoke and red fruit notes out of the tea as possible!!

Also, maybe I’m crazy but I swear it was even smokier/more intense last year!?

We’re all a little mad here.

Lex and I have been living for these song pairings by the way. :)

Something DEFINITELY went weird with how this tasting note is displaying, if that’s what you’re talking about Derk. When I go to edit it looks normal though, so idk…

Ah, nice! For our tea tasting last Sunday I prepared some puff pastries filled with pear and that St. Agur cheese. It went down pretty well, even though we didn’t have a lapsang to pair with ;)
