Lapsang Souchong Black Tea
Not for the faint of heart this Lapsang Souchong Black Tea. A tea with full-bodied, smoky flavour and a reddish liquor. Great on a cold damp winter's night. Winston Churchill's favourite black tea was Lapsang Souchong Tea. He was also fond of Johnnie Walker Red Label, Champagne Pol Roger and Cuban cigars. Legend has it Lapsang Souchong is the tea of Sherlock Holmes as well. Lapsang Souchong is noted for its rich aromas and flavours which include pine resin, wood smoke, smoked paprika, hints of dried Longan fruit, and the evocation of peated whiskey.
