drank Lapsang Souchong by Nina's Paris
1419 tasting notes

I’ll be posting a full review on my blog in the next week but I can’t wait to talk about this one. It totally surprised me. Here is a snippet:

This cup is perhaps the heaviest smoked Lapsang Souchong I have tasted but it is not ashes. This is fully developed sweet pine smoke. It actually tastes like pine to me. It is sweet without the bacon or pork BBQ notes. While it is heavy it has layers of taste as you sip.

Count me a fan!

I just got a sample of this in the mail, it smelled wonderful.

Lapsing is my youngest child’s favorite tea. She started drinking it when she was twelve. O.O Last year during geometry (we homeschool) she finished one tin of Black Dragon from Upton, one of Lapsang Crocodile from Dammann Freres, a set of Lapsang swaps, and one tin of Teavivre’s. She has a little Teavivre left, and then I will have to reorder or she will never make it through Algebra II!

I thought I understood geometry until I saw what she was doing. Come on its hundreds of years old – how could they come up with something new? lol

Algebra I just couldn’t get until college when the Prof told us what the X and Y we were solving for represented. Then I could solve it. My mind isn’t plumbed like everyone elses.

What was your daughter’s favorite LS? This one as I mentioned is really a smoke lovers treat.

Upton’s Black Dragon was her favorite of the three, with Teavivre’s coming in second. I will have to get her some more when I order more Baker Street, a cold weather staple for me.
