Lapsang Souchong Mustard
Led by food historian and mustard connoisseur, Robin Weir, the idea for the Lapsang Souchong mustard came to the development team as they contemplated flavours and ingredients discovered on The East India Company’s original voyages. Lapsang Souchong is an ancient Chinese tea originating from the Qing dynasty with a distinctive flavour created by the bitumastic soil of the region as well as smoking the long fermented tea leaves over pine. This naturally rich, smoky flavour was chosen as it was found to complement mustard perfectly.
Robin Weir explains: “Tea is a wonderful way to impart flavour to mustard as it has its own character and tannins which add to the overall palate of the mustard you are creating. It was only through a long process of experimentation that we got the balance of the smoky flavour and the smooth texture of the mustard just right where the characteristic tea leaves are present in a subtle way.”
The East India Company’s Lapsang Souchong Mustard is the perfect accompaniment to any barbeque and is wonderful with cheese, cold meats and poached salmon. Try combining with olive oil, white wine vinegar and salt and pepper to create a delightful dressing for a green salad. Heat Scale 3.
