drank Lapsang Souchong by Adagio Teas
11 tasting notes

Oh my lord…….it’s BBQ water. If I wanted this flavor in a liquid, I would grill a few porterhouses, scrape the grill with the traditional wire brush, and then collect and brew the particulate matter left over after all the scrapeage. DEFINITELY not what a tea should be in my opinion haha.

Kudos to all of you whose taste buds can handle (let alone enjoy) this!!! lol

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec

I’ve always said lapsang souchong tasted like sucking bacon rinds!

Honestly, I can’t believe how awful it was…haha…..I usually find some redeeming quality in every tea I try, even if I don’t prefer it….but this one? I can’t imagine how this tea made a name for itself…I know some teas have a nice umami/meaty flavor like Adagio’s black tea Golden Spring (excellent, by the way,) but this takes meaty n smokey in the totally wrong direction lol

Now I want to try it… just out of curiosity… lol
I doubt I will like it, I’m not into BBQ flavored teas either.

Pat

Haha, def try it…I always encourage trying new things, even things that may make you cringe, just for the experience lol…but buy as small of a quanitity as you possibly can! :) and if you end up liking it….well then, rock on with the Souchong :P

Hey everyone! Tea is one of my biggest passions. Few things in life make me happer than brewing a nice cup (or pot) of tea, while listening to some great music. To me, every cup of tea is like a therapy session. The act of brewing the tea in itself is relaxing, let alone momentarily losing yourself in the colors, aromas and tastes that great tea can offer. I welcome comments or points of chit chat on my reviews, so feel free to concur, dispute, or simply say hi in the commentos :)

Cheers all,

~Pat
