The Classic That Keeps on Rocking Australia: Lapsang Souchong
Back in the days when organic earl grey tea was simply known as tea and before the subtleties and wide range were public knowledge, there were just a few names you would see on the shelves, and lapsang souchong in Australia was one of them.
