Review by B. Kroshefsky
Overall Character
I have been a fan of Lapsang Souchong tea since I first discovered it in 1972. It is, far and away, my favorite and I usually have a large mug (24 oz.) of it each morning with just a little sugar. I adore the smokiness and the way it works its smooth way around my taste buds. I'm not alone in my desire for the tea, either. Two of my pet Senegal parrots love it too. One crunches the tea leaves each night as part of his going-to-bed ritual. The other sips from my mug each morning - and she knows when there isn't Lapsang in there. Oh, yeah, my wife likes it too on occasion. And MTW's Lapsang is the best I've found.

It has become impossible to find in bags or loose except at specialty stores. Thank goodness Mark Wendell ships to Alabama! I love it for breakfast or afternoon. I drink with milk though some connoisseurs might scoff at such a thought. It is distinctive, so you might want a sample if you've never had it. I prefer it to Hu Kwa, which is also delicious but not as robust.

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
