Barrel Aged Forbidden Forest Lapsang Souchong

Our Forbidden Forest Lapsang Souchong aged in Willet Rye Barrels for 6-9 months to create a unique mixture of smoky and sweet notes in this incredible infusion. Ancient downed pine trees are piled deep in the forest and used to smoke this amazing tea expression. The tea is literally hung above the fire and allowed to absorb the aroma. Amazing after a meal.

A little pricey, but so worth it. The smokey flavor is not overwhelming and the barrel aging adds a hint of sweetness.

Another Barrel Aged Winner June 5, 2013
Reviewer: Justin Mayer from Chicago, IL United States  
While not as robust, in terms of smokiness, as some non-barrel aged Lapsangs this tea makes up for that with the sweet spiciness that the rye barrel imparts. Well done!

Recent Shipment March 14, 2013
Reviewer: David Fletcher from Lantz, NS Canada  
I was very impressed with the speed and ease of placing and receiving my order.

I had read a review of this tea on Tasting Table; the flavour is not as dark and smokey as I had expected, and while it is pleasant enough, it is not something that I will likely order again (although I expect to order other teas from you from time-to-time because of the level of customer service and support).
