Free Sample Authentic Organic Lapsang Souchong Black Tea
As the name implies, brewed black tea ranges from reddish brown to black in color. One of its unique characteristics is that it mellows with age and grows richer and deeper in flavor. Vintage teas are superlative, boasting flavors and aromas that conjure up the same adjectives used to describe fine wine or whiskey. One key difference, however, is that storing tea is simple: kept in a well-ventilated place, tea requires no temperature regulation. Unlike other teas, black tea comes in compressed cakes of various shapes and sizes (round, square, and even bamboo-like tubes). With the beginning of the tea and horse trade in the Tang dynasty (618-907), caking tea made it easier to weigh and transport to remote tribal villages.
