Not for the faint of heart this Lapsang Souchong. 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 正山小种 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. Lapsang souchong is noted for its rich aromas and flavours which include pine resin, woodsmoke, smoked paprika, hints of dried longan, and the evocation of peated whiskey.
