You know, this might be a first. Yeah, I totally get cinnamon rolls. At least from the scent of the steeped tea. In that scent I can totally see cinnamon and bready and maybe some brown sugar.

I don’t taste it however. nor do I taste chocolate. But flavor is a combination of smell and taste so I can see where people are coming from in their descriptions. I don’t get any harshness in the flavor. Its very smooth and pleasant to drink.

I have only tried one other unsmoked Lapsang Souchong and I wasn’t too fond of it, but mostly because I found it too floral for my tastes. This one seems to just hit the spot. I think I really like it.

Stands up well to a second steeping western style. A little less cinnamon and brown sugar to the nose, but the flavor is still going strong.

I suspect this might be a good pairing with a spiced dessert of some kind. Would make a good complement. Like cinnamon rolls, spice cake, or fruit cake.

Oh! Nutmeg cheesecake!
