Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong(Lapsang Souchong)-#2
Product Review (submitted on February 28, 2013):
I like this Lapsang Souchong! I have to say ESGREEN guys really have a good taste selecting tea.
This Lapsang Souchong has been marked as #2 but it's easily the best souchong black I ever had so far.
It had the classic smoky flavor, but not deliberately pursued. I have a feeling that the tea makers were trying to emphasize other features a fine Souchong should have, which is fruity and honey sweet!
It will be boring if you only got the smoky, wood burning flavor out of a black tea. And that's why I like this one so much-it was sweet, fruity, floral with just a touch of the classic smoky notes. Perfect!
I will definitely try it again once my new gong fu teapot arrived.
