Thumbs up!"If you haven't figure it out by now this tea starts with a wonderful smoky flavor reminiscent of a fall evening spent by the fire with friends, it might even make you want to go jump in a pile of leaves."

adagiolapsangsouchong.jpgFor the longest time I have wanted to try Lapsang Souchong, the smoky black tea from the Fujian Province. Any tea infused with smoke seemed like it would be right up my alley, I do not know of anyone who does not love sitting by a campfire, even if they do not love for the smell to linger on with them. The tea that is now known as Lapsang Souchong or Russian Caravan was developed over the trade routes between China and the markets of Moscow, it acquired the smoky flavor by the campfires the traders would use as they travelled.

With Lapsang Souchong it is generally accepted that you will either love it or hate it. I have to admit that when I first brewed a cup of Adagio's Lapsang Souchong I was not a fan, it burned your throat and it smelled horrible. i have since worked on my brewing technique and found a new love.

If you haven't figure it out by now this tea starts with a wonderful smoky flavor reminiscent of a fall evening spent by the fire with friends, it might even make you want to go jump in a pile of leaves. This blend has a malty undertone but will leave you with a burning throat if brewed too strong, I still brew mine relatively strong and use soy milk to tone it down. As I said before you will either love or hate this tea, I recommend starting off with a sampler size and Adagio's blend is a good well balanced place to start!
