Sometimes I make this tea, and I stare into the cup, and I think “I wish I could quit you”.

There are days you just don’t understand why you like lapsang. Today is that day.

I love drinking this tea with lots of different steeping techniques because you get a different flavor profile every time. Today is a medium short steep in a big pot, and it couldn’t be more different from recent gongfu steepings. This pot is all sharp edges and bristling questions, like an arson investigator picking his way through the lingering smoke. There are days this is what you want. If today is not that day, I have found that small, very short steeps produce a much rounder, softer cup.

I desperately want to try this one, I plan to order a sample when I get more Baker Street Afternoon Blend.

Oh pants. I meant to order that, and completely forgot. There was something else someone had mentioned from Upton I’m realizing I forgot, too.
