drank Lapsang Souchong by Silk Road
11 tasting notes

At this point this is my favorite lapsang though I have tried few others. The tin smell is strong like campfire which is off putting to many but the brew is deep black with a smoky sweet finish and often my daily pot at work. I brew twice with little difference between pots. Surprisingly tolerant of brew times I have had a delicious cup well past 5 minutes. Take note that this is heavy on caffeine for those that are intolerant this tea can give you a long lasting high.

Very good in cooking too, steeped while soaking lentils gives you a tasty bacon flavor without the fat. Murchies lapsang is more bacony and is better for cooking.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec
