I decided to try this tea on my then boyfriend, now husband’s recommendation. This is the first lapsang souchong I’ve ever tasted and so far it’s the only one. The flavor came to me as a bit of a shock. It’s very smoky. Like drinking a campfire smoky. And the black tea base is very strong. I know it’s probably not the best lapsang souchong out there but given the bold flavor I have to say it’s definitely an acquired taste. I can only drink it when I’m having Chinese food, and only when I’m in the mood for it with my meal.

Flavors: Astringent, Burnt, Smoke

I started exploring tea when my body suddenly stopped tolerating coffee about two years ago. I love a good black tea and I enjoy white tea and tisanes. Besides drinking tea I enjoy crochet and I’m a classically trained singer.
