24 Tasting Notes
Ok so I haven’t tasted it yet, really it’s just to pretty to break up and put in a cup, I have it on display in my office, it makes for a really cool conversation starter. People look at that and say “that’s really tea?” yep, it’s fun to have around. I plan to buy another and drink it soon, I will review that when I do.
Lapsang is not for the faint of heart, it’s one of the boldest teas for aroma, and yet the flavor of the brew is very well balanced, with earthy smokyness, that is reminiscent of a good steak. This is one of my favorite teas for a cold day, in front of the fireplace. It also pairs well with chocolate bars, marshmallow, and graham crackers (s’mores)
