Relaxing night at home awaiting arrival of some food.

This smells extremely earthy and reminds me of pu’erh in colour and fragrance. The loose tea was very darkly brown and had formed some magnificent curly and twisty shapes. The smell is very strong and is starting to remind me of a sickly strong liquorice sort of smell, it’s oddly familiar…perhaps I have had Lapsand Souchong before but have not known what it was at the time.

I think if I was to sum this tea up in one word that word would be: smoky. My husband said it smells like a BBQ. I admit that it’s a very acquired taste and it’s one of those things that tastes exactly as it smells. Very dark reddy brown in colour makes this tea as wonderful to look at as it is to smell and taste.

Admittedly this is something I would have to be in the right mood to drink but I am loving the unique strength of it. I am just stunned by it’s uniqueness… I think I am in love.

Not a big L S fan, but I never tried it with food. I’ll bet it is tasty with Thai food.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
