This is only the second Lapsang Souchong I’ve ever tried, and while I’m pretty sure I don’t prefer them in general, this was still pretty great. I’ve found that the “smoked” quality of the tea affects the smell much more than the actual taste; where the smoky smell is quite strong and overpowering, the tea itself is pretty smooth with a pleasant astringency.

This came as one in a sample pack of five different Chinese black teas from Teavivre, ALL of which have been completely fantastic. I think I’ll definitely be looking to Teavivre for black tea from now on.
