This is such a pretty tea! All the different shapes and colors of ingredients make it fun to look at. I can imagine it being mesmerizing in the end of a tea kaleidoscope.
The lapsang is center stage here for sure. Smokiness is dominant in each sip, but there is more going on than in a straight lapsang. I don’t think I can pick out the puerh on it’s own. Under the smoke there are savory herbal notes that I can’t name. I kept thinking the green twigs were Juniper, but the ingredients say Cypress. This tea is very much like tasting your way through a forest! I’m liking it!
