A Lapsang Souchong smoked using the resinous bark of the pine trees, as well as the fragrant wood.  Deep, dark, and strong this is not for the fainthearted.

Picked, rolled, fired and then smoked, this loose leaf tea epitomises hand-made orthodox crafting. In an age of artificial chemicals and flavourings, these are real wood-smoked leaves.  Unlike the subtlety of our Lapsang Souchong, this loose leaf tea is more of a Laphroaig than a Springbank.

Tasting Notes

A rich, peaty black tea. The aroma is much like sitting by an open fire; smoky, warming and comforting.

Many of our customers enjoy this tea brewed strong and add a silky drop of milk. It also makes a fine hot toddy with whiskey and honey.

Quantity

Use 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 176°F (80°C) water.

To enjoy this tea very strong and balanced with rich, full-fat milk, use water at a higher temperature (194 - 203°F/ 90 - 95°C).

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

35¢ per cup based on 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz of water and 2 infusions.
