Lapsang Souchong at tealosophy Buenos Aires

tealosophy Buenos Aires  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  one of the many marks Thailand left on me was this love and appreciation for great teas, in fact this is my third month free of coffee and I must admit that I am feeling great. The other day during my breakfast at the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, I tasted this amazing tea that not only impress by the taste, but by the smoked aroma and the dark brown color, and I could not get over it. To the point that I became quite known in the hotel, and everyone knew what to serve me before I even opened my mouth, yeah true Park Hyatt service. But going back to the tea, I began my search for this blend, I rather ever get so much interest on things, but this became an obsession. Now the problem was that I kept calling it Smoked Darjeeling, and I was dead wrong…. the true blend was Lapsang Souchong by tealosophy, a charming tea store with two locations in Buenos Aires, and also one in Barcelona, Spain. Lapsang Souchong,  is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian, sometimes referred to as smoked tea. Lapsang is distinct from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavor. I have become addictive to it, and luckily enough seems that all luxury hotels in Buenos Aires have adopted it too, since you can find tealosophy at most properties nowadays. (special thanks to Jorgelina at Park Hyatt Buenos Aires for the present by tealosophy, you are beyond excellence in service) Lear more about tealosophy at www.tealosophy.com and choose your favorite one.  CM
