Unlike the over the top smoky export versions of Lapsang Souchong, our Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is made from an old Tong Mu Qi Lan sub-varietal tea bush, produced and located at the Tong Mu Village, which is mainly the birthplace of Lapsang Souchong teas.
Although sometimes referred as the non-smoky version of Lapsang Souchong, our Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, is very sweet smelling, with strong hints of caramel, chocolate, deep and rich malty flavors, followed with a honey like aftertaste. This is very different from the usual export versions of Laspsang Souchong.
Origin: Tong Mu Village, Wu Yi Shan, Fu Jian Province
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
If you like milk with your tea, add 10 to 15ml of sweetened/plain dairy milk and stir.
