In the realm of black teas, Lapsang Souchong is a whole different ballpark. Oh man. The first time I had Lapsang was as part of a blend from Adagio, and I wasn’t yet used to the taste, but now I’ve completely fallen in love with it! The aroma is really strong— it smells like a campfire, and it tastes so beautifully smoky. ”Complex” is a very good word for it. Also, there seems to be a slight pepper note in here. It’s really nice, and it complements the smokiness perfectly.
