I thought this was a Lapsang “blend”, but after having a few cups, it’s really “just” lapsang souchong. It’s a good one, I still think Upton’s Lapsang is slightly better.

Smooth, very much the same sense of oolong as from the twinings I just drank, but smoother and more flavorful. A nice change of pace, a very nice oolong.

Flavorful, has maybe Bergamont, Vanilla and Anise. Though milder than some Earl Grey’s I’ve had, which in some versions has been overpowering.

Reminds me of a slightly lighter Keemun Snail. Fairly long leave segments, almost full-leaf?
Very smooth, I like it.

A nice, smooth, general-purpose tea. Nothing stands out too much one way or another.
It’s a pretty fine-chopped tea, will steep pretty quickly.

Avery nice, smooth and flavorful Pu-Erh.

I don’t use sugor or milk, so I don’t steep a long time, but this is still a very nice Tea.
