On a recent expedition to the exotic land of California, I indulged in one of my pasttimes of seeing what the local bottle shops carry that we don't have at home. One thing I came home with is a bottle of Qi lapsang souchong tea liqueur. The promise of "aromas of rare fruits, exotic spice, and cedar-smoked tea" on the label drew me in. When I tried out the spirit, the first taste was delightful, but then quickly gave way to the cedar smoke. It tasted like I was drinking a smoldering wood pile. I tried putting it up against other aggressive flavors in the bar, but nothing was to tame it. Is there anything I can do with this stuff?
