TTB tea! I drank this with sugar and milk, and it was still quite smoky and savory. I added whipped cream, and I actually really enjoyed it like that! The savory and sweet flavors went together quite nicely. It’s still not my sort of tea though.

I love a mildly smoky tea. Most Lapsang Souchong is too aggressive for my tastes (makes me feel like I steeped straight-up charcoal!) but blends that have Lapsang in them are often some of my favorite teas (e.g. Churchill from The London Tea Room). So, long story short, I took a gamble and ordered 4oz of this one from Market Spice without ever sampling it first. Thankfully, the gamble paid off! This is the perfect balance of malty Assam and smoke with a nice smooth finish. I foresee this being one of my go-tos this winter!

I’m with you. My novice experiences with lapsang scared me away for a very long time, but with caution, I discovered that blends with a pinch (rather than a fistful) are pleasant, especially when it’s bleak outside.
