From white2tea

The return of our famed Fruit Bomb Lapsang Souchong, after quickly selling out last year we made sure to secure plenty of the 2020 spring edition.

Heavy, intense fruit fragrances over a full bodied Lapsang. A delicious experience.

Also referred to as Zhengshan Xiaozhong and Lapsang Souchong, this is a classic black tea from Wuyi in Fujian province.

Each purchase is for 25g of tea.

The name is surprisingly accurate: it’s spectacularly fuity.

Classic lapsang body but with a thick texture and an extraordinarily rich upper range of fruitiness. The leaves themselves already smell incredible.
Taste: bitterness at the bottom, typical black tea acidity and buttery, smooth fruit flavor above. Wonderful aroma. I got peach and refreshing citrus notes, but also some carrot sweetness and apple. Very little astringency until later steeps.
I enjoy it most slightly cooled down (but not too much). “straight from the gaiwan” the bitterness can steal some of the spotlight of the fruit.

Works well gong fu, western style and everything in between.

An extraordinary tea definitely worth its price.
If it hadn’t sold out so quickly I would’ve gotten more than a 25g sample. I’m now saving half of it for special occasions and am crossing all of my fingers and toes they get a new batch soon.

This is the 2019 batch of this tea – though since I did the W2T Club box for this year’s “Lapsang Month” I now have a sample of the 2020 version too..

This was probably the most popular of last year’s Lapsang selections and, in fact, this year’s batch has also already sold out before any of the other LS brought in. People just adore this one, and I can totally understand why. I’ve been careful to stretch out my ounce of it, in the hopes it would come back this year. It’s an amazing tea with brandied red fruit notes, carmelized sweet potato, sweet pine sap resin, ripe plum, and cherries. Truly unique and one of the best unsmoked Lapsang that I’ve ever had!

Sounds interesting. Also, I’m looking forward to seeing your tasting note about the Strawberry Lapsang.
