5 Tasting Notes

Lapsang Souchong is a polarizing tea. It seems most people either love it or hate it. I love it! Smokey and wonderful, it’s the only black tea (so far) that I can stand with out milk and sugar. You can also make many infusions. I’d strongly recommend ignoring the suggested brewing method on the tin and instead doing short (15 second) infusions with a small amount of fairly hot water. With this method I can get about 8 infusions before noticing a decline in flavor or aroma! It’s a lovely tea. My mother told me that Fergie, Duchess of York, like to drink this cut with earl grey. My mother and grandmother used to have “Fergie tea” holding their pinkies out and everything. It makes this tea all the more memorable for me.

This is my daily drinker now. It’s bright green and tasty! The first cup contains a greater portion of the matcha and thus is sweeter than normal genmaicha. I generally get about four infusion from 4g of it. Cheaper than sencha, but more interesting then standard genmaicha!

I got this as part of the Den’s Tea Novice sampler. My tea experience isn’t very wide but I thought this was a decent tea. I wouldn’t purchase it for myself, however, as I’m not very fond of the mixture of matcha and sencha.
