Fireside Treat Tea Examples of our 2 oz Canisters Customer Enjoying the Tea!

Hailing from the Fujian province in China, this lapsang souchong tea has a distinctive smoky flavor and heady aroma. This tea is dried over pinewood fires to invoke the essence of smoke that comes though both in smell and in taste. This is one of my favorite black teas because no matter how long I leave it steeping, it never takes on the bitter flavor that can happen with teas. To me this is smooth and flavorful, but this is definitely a 'love it or hate it' type of tea. We recommend sample sizes if you've never experienced lapsang souchog tea before. Get creative and add it as a part of a rub for salmon or BBQ meat!

Steeping Suggestions:  1-1½ tsp. tea, 8 oz. boiling (212°) water, steep for 3 ½ - 4 minutes

This was such a unique smelling and tasting tea just as Sam wrote on the invoice. I appreciated that little hand written note which added the perfect touch to such rustic packaged tea satchels. The smell of the tea in the package was all campfires and outdoor life. Once I brewed it and filled my cup I put my nose right into the steam. I closed my eyes and it brought me back to a familiar time when I was a young child and would water the Christmas tree for my mom. I would crawl under the tree with that little cup of water as I smelled the sweetness of the pine as its sap dripped down and coated the base of the tree. All this mixed with the burning fire place wood that constantly roared during Christmas time is what this tea made me think of. I enjoyed the cup and even brewed another one using the same leaves as before. I would drink this tea again but not too often; Only when I want to be reminded of my great childhood times. I will keep this tea a little memory or a little secret if you will. I will share it with close friends when we are alone and need something unique in our lives.
