Lapsang Souchong (Zengshan Xiaozhong)

Starting at: $1.50

Lapsang Souchong is a smoked tea with a distinctive flavor from the mountains of northern Fujian province. The tea leaves are withered and dried over pine wood fires, and become thick, glossy, coral black strips, slightly curled. They produce an infusion that is whiskey-like in appearance with a phenolic aroma and a pungent smoky flavor. This tea is often used in "Russian Caravan" blends. It is drunk with or without sugar and milk. Use 1 generous tsp. dried leaf (3-4g) per 6-ounce cup of spring water heated to just below boiling (212). Pour hot water over leaves and steep 4 minutes.
