This is the second time that I’ve had Lapsang Souchong tea and the first that I’ve enjoyed it. The previous time was a teabag version back in college which was really bad. When I opened up the bag the smoke aroma was strong enough to be scary but once I brewed the tea, the tea aroma came off as a lot more mild and not scary at all. The main thing that surprised me was how light the tea was overall with a nice sweet and slightly smoky taste to it. If you like beef jerky there is a good chance that you will like this tea. Overall I find it to be pretty good for something different and I will gladly finish off the 3oz bag that I have but I doubt that I will bother to order again as while it is good there are a lot other teas that I enjoy more.
