Lapsang Souchong is a type of Chinese black tea that is known for its distinctive smokey flavour and aroma. The tea leaves are smoked over pinewood fires, which gives the tea its unique character. The smokey flavour is often described as strong and pungent, with notes of wood, tar, and even a hint of sweetness. Lapsang Souchong is often enjoyed as a breakfast tea or as a way to warm up on a chilly day.
