I love the description! Bonnie, did you write that?

This is a gift from Bonnie to help get youngest through geometry! I had ordered her sme from Teavivre but it will be about seven days before it gets here and she said she needed lapsang NOW! Bonnie was so sweet to send this, and it got here in just a couple of days!

I had a small cup, not wanting to deplete her pot of tea too much. It is very smoky, but it is not at all offensive. The cup is a very clear orange and the smoke remains strong after steeping. The Lion and The Lamb left a pleasant ash smoke flavor after the sip, but this one has a little less aftertaste I think.

The smoke is certainly strong enough, and youngest says she will be making it again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next!

What comment? You mean ‘very smoky?’ Yep! Like Robbie the Robot…“Warning Mr. Robinson,this is a smoky Lapsang Souchong!” But it has a depth and sweetness also.

Yes, I loved how succinctly it was put! Just “very smoky.” Bam. Done. LOL! But it is nice smoke. Doulton would love this one. I miss Doulton!

I clicked to go see what you meant about the description before I read the rest. “Very Smoky” and nothing else. That IS singularly hilarious.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
