Default Lapsang Souchong

Lapsang Souchong (also known as Russian Caravan) is a black tea from the Fujian province in China. This tea is smoked over a fire of pine needles and has a smokey flavor with hints of pine and earth. I tried this tea with and without honey, and I'd recommend it with a bit of honey as it seems to round it out a bit more and compliments the smokiness well.

As far as what cigar would go with this, I would suggest a bold/robust cigar, possibly an Escencia or Illusione. I would not, however, suggest one drink this with a cigar they have not smoked before. The smokiness in this tea lingers in the mouth for a long time, (in fact I can still recall the taste exactly) and can/will overpower any subtle flavors you might be looking for in yoru cigar.
