As so often with Twinings this tea does not keep up with what it is promising. Nice tea box. Great fragrance of the leafs. But average brew…

After steeping the leafs (very hot, 3-4min) the brew is able to carry its fragrance very well. Taste seems dull. No magic is happening. All I taste is old tobacco. Aftertaste is acid…
Second brew does not carry flavor anymore which is unusual for a Chinese black tea, especially if it is coming from the Fujian province.
To me only drinkable after steeping in a highball glass on low temperature (65 degrees Celcius). It even gets a mellow, sweet aftertaste.
Had much better Lapsangs that were sold in small, independent tea shops around the globe (Germany, Thailand) without brand name…
