LAPSANG SOUCHONG

Categories: , ,

Literally: The Straight Mountain Small Variety. This highly esteemed Chinese tea is processed over a fire of pine logs, giving it its unrivaled smoky aroma and taste. It is a good tea to drink by the fireplace while puffing on a pipe, or on especially dark rainy days. The solid, black-brown leaves brew cups of pensive essences, like welcoming hearth-fires imparting a thermal inner calm.
