The ratings on this are all over the place. I rather liked it. I actually got three steeps out of the bag. The first made me think bacon. The second was pulled pork. The third was lighter but still full of flavor. The base is a little hard to detect. Basically a respectable smoky cup.

I often try and it doesn’t work well, but occasionally one surprises you. This is the first time I liked the second cup better than the first.

I just looked this up and apparently Twinings has discontinued this tea. Figures.

I will check but I might have this. Gav bought it in Ireland and didn’t like it. If it is here, you can have it! I finally mailed you those Assams I told you about, as well as some special from Ireland Twinings!

You’re too kind but not necessary. I was researching this tea for a longer blog review when I found out it was discontinued. It left me a little baffled why they offered it as a free sample in their 3 bag give away. Glad they did though. I am not afraid of Lapsang now.

Can’t wait to try the Assams. It is one type of loose leaf teas I haven’t investigated much yet.

They are still showing it as available on their US website, and Gav just bought his not long ago in Ireland. It may still be around! Rats! I could have sent you some good lapsangs, too! Next time!

Yep, when I checked their website the other day this was out of stock. The loose leaf version said out of stock and discontinued. So I can get this in bag form.
