Hmmm…I can taste the keemun and lapsang most distinctly. The pinewood forest campfire flavor is tempered by freshly baked biscuits. Yum….smoky biscuits! :)
There is a refreshing tang of astringency with each sip. Not bitter but tannic, in a good way—“brisk”.
Russian Country can be considered the “gateway” to much bolder teas. Or a lapsang blend for the uninitiated. The smokiness is there but its boldness is tamed by the other yummy black teas.
Interesting…but not too complex—pretty good choice for a lazy weekend!
