Lapsang Souchong tea
This variant is currently sold out
Mrs Doyle's Lapsang Souchong is just amazing ! it has a large, open, black, slightly grayish leaf with a sharp note of smoke. When plucking this tea, the youngest leaves and the bud are not taken, but the Souchong leaf is used, which is riper, larger and from the lower parts of the tea bushes.
When fermentation is over the leaves are put on hot iron pans or iron plates and then roasted for a short time, the tea is then smoked over exotic woods rich in resin. Mrs Doyle's makes sure that the smoking time is set to the exact second, when she knows it's just right, so the taste is smoky and spicy.
ingredients: loose leaf Lapsang Souchong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong or Lapsang Souchong Crocodile.
