drank Lapsang Souchong by Garant
5 tasting notes

This is what I’d give to anyone who is curious, but intimidated, by the prospect of a smoky black tea. The tea within the pyramid bags is far from dust, and is light enough to keep people who know little about loose leaf from choking on an over-full cup of lapsang. That being said, it still tastes like proper lapsang, with that great smoky scent wafting from the cup and lingering on after the cup’s been drained dry. Perfect for tea beginners, lazy folks, and those of us who have a bad habit of stuffing the tea ball with too many leaves.

Bio

I study at uni, and I drink a shitton of tea. I do more of the latter than the former.

I am currently having an intense, passionate love affair with lapsang souchong. I live with two really crappy landlords right now, but I am never going to hold any lingering resentment against my landlady because she introduced me to lapsang.

That being said, Earl Grey will always be my first love. I also unexpectedly fell for Darjeeling, which was quite the surprise!

The only tea I’ve ever truly disliked is English Breakfast. I know it’s intended to be consumed with milk and sugar, but I always drink tea straight (or with one sugar) and I will forever be scarred by memories of a 5-day trip to Paris where bagged EB was the only tea I could get my hands on. (Paris was great though, bad tea aside!)
