Thank you Angrboda for this sample tea!
The Arctic wind swept down through the Rocky Mountains yesterday afternoon…whoosh!
I stepped out of my Tea Shop, driving 3 miles home…just as the first snowkles began to fall. Perfect timing!
On went the Christmas lights and a movie! http://flic.kr/p/dEPKHb
I was waiting for a proper snow day to kick back and drink tea while watching the Wintry Wonderland through my large picture window.
This morning, I woke up early…wrapped myself in a fuzzy pink robe and poked my head through the curtains to view the pristine white blanket of snow over everything. Top to bottom white!
I don’t need to leave home for days. With temperatures predicted to be in the teens and and minus zero, I’ll stay home!
Comfort and Joy!
Lapsang Souchong fits the scene…Christmas lights on the tree, wreath over the fireplace, teapots out on display. http://flic.kr/p/dETRv6
I’m a Lapsang Souchong when-the-mood-is-right sort of person. I cook with LS often but drink it on rarely.
I have to say that this TEA is semi-mild and entirely smooth.
Very smooth actually!
It’s not boring or flat. Sometimes I think lapsang souchongs are toned down and become boring as though someone sprinkled a little smoke on an average black tea. That isn’t the case here.
Rich, smooth with a hint of citrus…no sooty aftertaste or bitterness a very good drinkable tea.
Had a mug with cream and sugar…loved the flavor…um. Sweet with a smoky hint of saltiness.
The Arctic Blast is rolling across North America, heading East…and if you can grab some Lapsang Souchong…take a break and look out the window at the splendor of Winter, keeping warm with a friendly cup of smoky tea!
