Take out the word "bad" and I think that is a pretty accurate description. I can see how people would not like it at all. It is certainly not what I an used to when it comes to tea or any hot liquid for that matter.

It sounds interesting GB - wrap a bit up in some foil (with holes), place in a wok, put a grate above, and smoke what?....maybe some scallops or chicken? I've definitely heard of "tea smoked" foods and you've got some good smoke flavor already in there.

I'm a big fan of lapsang souchong tea. It always reminds me of the smell of hot tar. I add a little sweetener to it and I love it, but it's definitely an acquired taste.

Well, I call it bad since it is smoke from pine instead of hickory.

I used a recipe once with Lapsang Souchong for "Marbled" Eggs. You take hard boiled eggs and gently crack the shells all around without breaking the shells off. Then let the eggs steep in the tea for several hours and let the smoky flavor and color penetrate throught the cracks. Then remove the shells and voila! Sexy marbled eggs. Serve them with soy aioli or make deviled-style by mixing a little soy into the yolks. I'll see if I can track down the official recipe.

Here it is: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...ONNAISE-107961

I bought some when I was trying to learn more about tea and it was very high grade and I made it very carefully and I thought it was one of the most awful things that I tried to drink. I wound up giving it away to someone who could appreciate it far more than I could.

I became a fan of this tea while in the orient and here in Iowa it is almost impossible to find. There is a tea dealer in San Francisco Ca that carries it I order 2-3 times a yr

There is a tea company called Teavana that is opening up stores all over the place. I have been to the one in S. Fla. They have a website where you can order from and their lapsang souchong is organic.

Teavana is where I bought mine. Teavana is pretty expensive though. There are much less expensive places to buy good tea.
