Lapsang Souchong, Unsmoked, Spring 2017
After I found out that this tea was not going to be produced in Spring 2018, I immediately hoarded the remaining stash. I recently realized I can't drink it all, so I'm saving some for me and letting go of the rest. This is a seriously awesome tea that I am SUPER hopeful will be available this spring!
Our Lapsang Souchong from this year is not smoked, as you traditionally see in the west. Instead, it's gently processed to bring out stonefruit and warm spice notes. The main notes we get are plum, honey, and allspice, with little bitterness and an immensely rich aroma. This is a medium bodied black tea that we recommend enjoying ourdoors on chilly autumn days! :-)
