While they don’t say on the Red Leaf site whether or not this is a Lapsang Souchong, it certainly smells like one. It smells like campfire. I like that smell…and I hate camping. The taste was much smoother than the average Lapsang. Instead of instantly tasting “burning”, it went down smooth. It betrayed a malty/floral note along with the smoky attributes.

The second best smoked tea I’ve ever tried.

Yup, going on the shopping list!

Ha, I knew this would be up your alley. :-)

Jaime

Now I’m craving LS and will have to make some when I get home, and will be up half the night. Thanks, man. :-P

Geoffrey Norman

You’re quite welcome. (evil grin)

Jaime

Trade a smidge of this for some Chocolate Bacon?

Geoffrey Norman

Make it a Golden Yunnan Whiskey Sour, and you’ve got yourself a deal. :-)

Jaime

Instead of or along with? Either way, I think it could be arranged.

Geoffrey Norman

I meant “instead of”, but if you throw in both, I’ll add something else of your choice. Keen?

Jaime

Keen!

I hope they take your camping remark and run with it in terms of marketing. It is like camping without being cold and bathroom-less! Sounds interesting, I am thinking I will have to give a smoked tea a try.

Geoffrey Norman

If you’ve had a Lapsang Souchong before, it’s kinda like that. I’m still not convinced it isn’t. ;-)

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
