Although often heavily smoked and used to make Lapsang Souchong, this Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong (“Wu Yi Mountain Small Tea Plant”) is processed in the traditional style of black tea and has notes of dark chocolate with a surprisingly sweet finish.
Great black teas like this one don’t require additives like milk and sugar to enhance their deliciousness, as their sophisticated and enigmatic personalities sing harmoniously on their own.
