Not a fan of the tradition variety of LS, but Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is quite remarkable. I usually purchase from Jing Tea Shop or more often Tea Trekker. ... C+I%3E.php

I've heard rumors that someone is producing a cedar-smoked "Lapsang Souchong"... Any idea what this style of tea might be called?

Also, does anyone know of a way to tell whether or not a Lapsang Souchong has been cold-smoked vs. hot-smoked? I know that "Tarry" is usually the designation for pine tar smoked... any other Lapsang Souchong-specific terminology worth knowing?
