For people who find the smoky taste of Tarry Lapsang Souchong a bit too strong. A wonderfully milder variation that is suitable for every hour of the day.
After the oxidation process, Lapsang Souchong is dried in bamboo baskets over burning coniferous or cypress wood. This gives this tea the characteristic smoke flavor. The name 'Souchong' refers to the fourth and fifth leaves of the tea plant. These leaves are generally found on the underside of the tea plant. They are coarser and contain less auromatic elements than the younger leaves.
