Recipes using tea are quite common. Actually, we run across quite a few. Many of the recipes are all the same with very few being really unique, particulary those using Lapsang Souchong Tea. A recipe from the Vancouver Sun of Lapsang Souchong Scented Caramel Apples really caught our attention.
For many tea drinkers, Lapsang Souchong is an acquired taste. A traditonal Chinese oolong, Lapsang Souchong is made by smoking tea over wood fires. Tea planters each have their own special way of creating the unique, smoky taste which makes the tea so distinctive. One variety, Taylors Lapsang Souchong favors the classic Lapsang style from northern Formosa. Taylors Lapsang Souchong can be served with or without milk.
Truthfully, we havent tried this yet, but are looking forward to seeing if local kids will enjoy these apples.
