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

Picked, rolled, fired and then smoked, this 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 tea is more of a Laphroaig than a Springbank.

Cost per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Tasting Notes

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

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

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

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

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.
