Lapsang Souchong is a black tea from the Fujian province of China, famous for its smoky aroma and flavor. To create this, the finished tea is given some extra drying over a smoking pine fire, imparting a sweet, clean smoky flavour to the tea. Clean with a slightly cool smokiness, it is sweet, crisp and edgy. This fine cuppa is wonderful choice with chicken dishes, complementing smoked fish and meats with each sip. An unlikely but surprisingly rewarding choice, it pairs well with dessert courses with a lemony, tangy character.
