I could seriously smell this lapsang souchong from Zhi Tea all day. This Chinese black tea is smoked over pinewood fires which imparts a really distinct smoky aroma and flavor.
For some, lapsang souchong can be one of those teas you either really love or really hate. The scent and taste can be reminiscent of good whiskey or barbecued meats, but the tea also lends itself well to mixing with other black teas to cut the flavor a bit. If you like a good strong cup of tea, you should definitely give this a try!
