Employee Selections: Love of Lapsang

We polled some members of the Octavia Tea family to see what their favorite teas are. Our hard working staff drinks tea all day long, so they’re sure to have some great opinions!

“I always panic when someone asks me what my favorite tea is because it changes so frequently! However, I’m currently obsessed with our Lapsang Souchong. I’m very drawn to the smokiness; perhaps due to the memory of smelling my fathers fireman gear growing up. However, this “campfire tea” has a dusty boldness that makes it the perfect afternoon tea. Also, I highly recommend snacking on some cheese… as a general life style choice but particularly while enjoying this tea.”

From our website:

This Chinese black tea obtains its distinctive flavor when piles of burning pinewood boughs are utilized during the drying process. Smoke permeates through the leaf, imparting a crisp, assertive, campfire flavor. The burnished, bronze cup color and grand character of this tea is often likened to a single-malt scotch. Ideal for enjoying in an old leather armchair.
