Today we will discuss another word which is not insect-related:
This is lāpǔshān xiǎozhǒng, better known by the Sino-ignorant population as “lapsang souchong”, a delicious, smoky black tea:
I took this picture at Goldfish Tea, a superb Chinese-style tea shop in Royal Oak. You may not be able to tell by looking at it, but the word lāpǔshān xiǎozhǒng means “small plant from Lapu Mountain”. Do I know of Lapu Mountain? No. But I do know that this tea is produced near the Wuyi Mountains, so maybe Lapu is one of the mountains in the range. Regardless, I recommend you try this tea the next time you are at Goldfish Tea or, alternatively, find yourself near Lapu Mountain.
