This is good. The smokiness of the dry leaves carry into first steep. Behind the smoky facade, there is a nipping quality to this that I like -sort of a touch of iron in your palate. Not sure whether it is the Keemun or Darjeeling, but it’s definitely welcome.

IMHO, second best of the British Blend Sample. Not sure if I should get the full size though.

lapsang souchong fan.

i like my black tea plain – no milk, no honey, no anything else. (ok, maybe a tiny slice of lemon)

i LOVE blending teas.
