Savour the smoke flavor as you pour a red amber brown hued liquor into your cup. This aggressively aromatic black tea brings warm memories of campfires in summer and laughter with friends. Lapsang Souchong Star is organic and available at DavidsTea.
Warm your tea pot, drain, add 1 to 2 teaspoons to 475 ml (16oz) near boiling water. Infuse the leaves for 4-7 minutes.
I discovered you can steep Lapsang Souchong up to 3 times. That said, the intensity diminishes with additional infusions.

Images of campfires are swirling in my mind. I do love that smokey flavor in teas. Remember to add some steeping time for each subsequent infusion.
It’s a great tea for campfires! I forgot to right the steeping times down for each infusion that is why they were omitted. If you like smokey tea give this one a try. Thanks Michelle
Some versions aren’t smoked. Traditionally the tea type was made that way but better versions that are produced now aren’t smoked. Per my understanding Jin Jun Mei is a variation of Lapsang Souchong, so still considered one type of it, even though it’s essentially completely different, a buds-only form of tea.
InTEAresting :) Thanks for your TEAlightful comment.
