The word 'Tarry' indicates that this is the strongest form of this type of tea. Souchong refers to the fourth and fifth leaves of the tea plant. These leaves are generally found on the underside of the tea plant and are coarser and contain less auromatic elements than the younger leaves. 

Unlike other teas, the Lapsang Souchong does not become bitter when strongly brewed.

The tea tastes great in combination with spicy food, strong cheeses, whiskey and smoked fish or meat.
