Lapsang Souchong (Unsmoked)
Unsmoked Lapsang returns for 2021! With its unmistakable peach aroma and incredible, complex menagerie of flavour, it's no wonder this was our most beloved tea over the last two years. A lighter, fresh and fruity style of black tea.
The peach, stone fruity aroma can fill a room in seconds and is unlike any tea I've experienced. The sweetness can be fruity, syrupy, woody and with hints of burnt sugar. There's an accompanying tartness, with wine-like character and a slight minerality. The overall taste is fresh and light for a black tea, but the beauty of this freshness is that the tea will mature over time, with the aroma rising and imporving over the first few months. The taste balance will begin to change later, with a heavier body developing and the woody, vinous, tarte flavours taking over.
A wonderful tea for any tea drinker. Easy to brew and appreciate.
