Surprisingly light and fruity for a Lapsang Souchong. Not overpowering.

Cofftea

Light, fruity, and Lapsang Souchong in the same sentence? I just may try that;)

Lainie Petersen

Really quite good. Doesn’t taste like a tar pit!

This is better than I remember. Slightly earthier, but still sweet and smooth. Wonderful

My favorite black tea. Sweet, spicy, smooth, lovely.

Teaman

That’s a pretty strong endorsement. I’m a yunnan gold fan and so this peaks my interest. I’ve had a fair number of golden yunnans from various places and some are good, some not, and a few really good. Emporer’s Gold from Tao of Tea is my favorite by far. I’m wondering how it compares with this one. Have you compared this one with other sources?

Lainie Petersen

I have tried some other sources, Ineeka’s is really good, as is Narien’s. Both are different enough from this one such that I have a hard time saying one is “better”. I will say that I prefer this Yunnan Gold, though!

Teaman

Chicagoland sure has sources I’ve not heard of. May have to check them out sometime. Thanks for the recommends!

MKstuder

Nice, Lainie. I have a tiny sample of Yunnan from Teas Etc. that I haven’t tried yet. I’ll look for the qualities you mention.

Rich floral flavors, creamy body. Yum.

Still yummy, I actually think a bit of age improves it.

This most recent batch is a bit more roasted than others, but the peachy quality emerges quite nicely after the first couple of steeps. Delicious.

Yes, I was thinking that about the name…

LENA

lol…the name certainly made me do a double take!

HAHA! “Keep Hairy Crab cool and dry away from direct sun light and other spices.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I would laugh every time I saw this tea if I had it, I think.

The more I drink this tea, the more I like it. Love the peach and floral notes. Rich, smooth liquor. Luxurious.

Deliciously peachy flavored oolong (there is no peach flavor added, the tea just naturally taste of peaches). Better than I remember!

A nice inexpensive cooked pu’erh: Very smooth with none of the “paint stripper” quality that some cheap cooked pu’erhs can have. Whiff of the barnyard, plus a bit of chocolate. Good stuff, and the little bricks are fun.

A lovely floral oolong. Second steep even better than first, richer, fuller,etc. Wonderful big leaves. A definite keeper

2 min isn’t long for a 2nd steep…

Carolyn

Does it taste fishy (or crabby)?

Jillian

The name makes me think of a giant, furry crab climbing out of a pot of tea. XD

Marlena

No fishy, no crabby, no seaweed to hide in and no hairs! Great name, though

Carolyn

Interesting.
