You'll either love this one, or .... It's a true Organic butterfly lapsang souchong that will require that you "be courageous." It has been compared to a burning campfire or the aftertaste of a fine cigar. The uninitiated will be offended at first but, to those that know, this smoky cup is second to none, mysteriously miraculous, a feast for the taste buds. It's truly one of the most unique items on our menu and there will be no middle ground in appreciation. We warn you; #DareGreatly.
Souchong leaves, noted for their thick, rough appearance are withered over burning pine bows, placed in barrels covered with cloth and allowed to ferment. A process which has gone virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. With a rich smoky aroma, take a sip and note how the smoky sensation fills your mouth in a way no other tea possibly could. Can you tell which side of the love/hate relationship we fall on? It is important to steep Lapsang for slightly less time than you would other teas. The flavor may also be enhanced with a touch of milk and sugar. This is a superb tea, especially considering it's organic status.
