This fruity version of Lapsang Souchong is a non-smoked black tea from China which was first popularized around 2005. This new version has hints of lemon peel with a mild honey sweetness. It's a fairly easy tea to make, and a tea that doesn't get bitter easily. 

The flavor is mild, with a very bright undertone compared to most Chinese black teas, which normally are more malty than citrusy. There is a small amount of a tannin aftertaste that pleasantly complements the overall balance of the tea. For black tea, this one feels very relaxing, which makes it a perfect tea to have at any time of day. 

You can get many brews from this tea. Normally you would expect about three good brews with a black tea, where this one seems to perform well even after the fifth brew.

This Lapsang Souchong tea consists of two leaves and one tea bud. It has been roasted for over twenty hours after being picked at the infamous Tongmu Guan around Wuyi Mountain, China.
