    Black tea fettuccine with mushroom cream sauce (pg 70) I am a fan of lapsang souchong tea, despite a waiter in a tea house trying to talk me out of it. (Yes, that really happened.) Even worse, I am a fan of pu erh - the older the better. This recipe works well with either. Lapsong souchong adds a smoky flavor, pu erh adds an earthy flavor. Either works well with the mushroom cream sauce. It adds a bit of surprise to an otherwise standard dish. A very useful recipe.
