Bought this after the success of the lapsang souchong. This is not as good. It’s not large leaf for a start, but the main thing is that the taste is a bit flat. Not enough malt for my liking. So, drinkable, but not exciting…

This is a fabulous tea for easing head pain, which it’s doing right now for my post-chiropractic fall-out headache.

A very nice, almost-white light tea, with good honey and melon. A little mineral/chemical character comes a little forward for me.

Tea bag in the mug, easy and dependable. This tea is similar to Moroccan Mint. Delicious!

A very mellow oolong. Very good. Beautiful, clear, deep copper liquor.

Oooh, haven’t had this one in a while. It’s delicious at any time of day.

Very delicate and slightly sweet. Next time I’ll use more leaves, but it was good.

I’m kinda torn on this one. It’s inoffensive, but not particularly blowing my mind. It’s black tea. That’s all. Alright quality. A reluctant thumbs up.

Wasn’t too fond of the smell before I took the first sip, but once I did take a sip, I was pleased.

This tea is great on its own, but I usually mix it with Adagio’s black coconut. I did that today and it is gooo-ooo-ooood!

Needed the extra caffeine today, I guess.

2nd steep on these leaves, 10 min this time — probably too long. Still good flavor, although less aroma and a bit of astringency.

Glass infuser in mug, boiling water, 6 min. More bitter and astringent than I like, but this could be due to too long a steep or too much tea, so will try again. I drink earl greys more for the scent, anyway, but it needs to make a good drink, as well.

Not that bad for green tea in a bag. The added herbs are nice.

Georgie is very mild, almost thin. If you are looking for a brisk, robust tea, then please look elsewhere. It was pleasant with some malty flavors.

Slightly smoky, but much less than other Yunnan teas I have tried.

It tastes a bit better with a shorter steeping time. I still don’t recommend it unless you’re in a pinch, though. Ditto for just about all traditional bag teas. :P

I had always shied away from lapsang before, but really enjoyed a Smoky Russian Caravan I had bought over the web. I happened to be in Waitrose and spotted this. Large leaf tea, cheap (£1.20/packet), why not give it a try? I’m really impressed. It does smell (and taste) of bonfires, but there’s a sweetness there too. Lovely, and it makes me want to try a more expensive one at some point to see if I can taste the difference!

Not as good as a real British or Irish tea (like Barry’s), but pretty close.
