Very good. I actually bought this tea because I wanted to infuse whisky with it. But I will have to order more, because I brewed so much of it already. It is better than many Lapsang Souchong teas that I have had in the past, where I enjoyed the smoky aroma, but didn't like the taste enough for a second cup. This one is different - I could sip it all day! (And I believe it will make a wonderful infused bourbon!) (Posted on 11/30/2017)

An excellent lapsang souchong from China that is a stronger smokier cousin of Hu-Kwa.

Overall Character
This is one of those teas you either love or hate. I love this tea in the morning, with milk and a very light breakfast. I actually prefer it to the HuKwa, which I drink plain. When I am in the mood for a strong and biting tea, I reach for the pungent smokiness of Lapsang Souchong.

China Lapsang Souchong

This rare, long leaf tea gains its distinctive tarry flavor and smoky tang from the pine fires over which it is dried. Rich in taste and smoky aroma, it produces a deep red liquor when brewed. China Lapsang Souchong has a smokier taste and aroma than our Hu-Kwa Formosan Lapsang Souchong tea.

Brewing Tips: Our China Lapsang Souchong should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. China Lapsang Souchong should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!


How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
