MilitiaJim was a little excited to have some tea, and grabbed a random Golden Moon sampler pack, so I don’t have pictures of the loose leaf.
The reason I do not like lapsang souchong is not the flavor, but the constant fear and anxiety they give me – I keep looking for the fire and panicking that we need to evacuate.
Overall the tea is a sweet smoky smooth black tea with little astringency.
Resteep: Zarafina black-loose-strong = a very weak cup of black tea with smoky hints
