248 Tasting Notes
I got this when I went back home for spring break last week. It’s my first lapsang souchong and I love it. The smokey flavor is very soothing and I love how I only need a bit of leaves to make a decent 8oz cup of it. (Thus making it a very cost effective tea for this college student.)
Also for anyone in south bay area (San Jose), I highly recommend visiting Puripan in Santana Row. A few of the girls that work there are very sweet and helpful.
I first tried it at the tea event I organized for my club last year and I loved it. But I’ve been holding off on buying this tea for a while… mostly because of the price.
But last week during spring break I finally gave in and got a tin. This tea is one of the better flavored teas I’ve had in a while but my palate is starting to veer away from flavored teas in general. Not sure if I love this more than my Takibi yet.
