Commercial Description

The tea leaves are a small varietal called Xiao Zhong, which are dried and smoked over pine wood fires in the traditional way. It has a distinctively rounded, sweet flavour with a hint of dry, spicey fruit, some cocoa undertones and naturally the smokiness for which it is so famous. With this Lapsang Souchong the smokiness is delicate and complements the flavour of the black tea, without overwhelming it.

Brewing Instructions: (from Canton Tea Co)

Use 1tsp per cup (200ml); water temperature around 100°C (212°F): and infuse 2-3 mins.
