seriously!
this tea is ONE of a KIND!
Lapsang, Candy Cane Tea, and Ginger Tea?!?! all in one cup.
i still laugh when i read the ingredients, but it is really an amazing cup. not upsetting in the least. but it is quite feisty. and precarious. the lapsang is big on the nose, but really it’s the ginger that carries the whole cup. a little cinnamon pinch on the cheek & marigold flowers to pat you on the head.
smaug is a complex and quite lovable dragon.

obviously i am the only one drinking this tea.

i never give teas actual ratings because it’s seems arbitrary to me. i mean it uses so many people and so many diverse opinions and tastes and they all end up in the same 15 point range that i don’t see how it’s very helpful. but whatevs. i’m not complaining, just explaining why i don’t really rate stuff.

BUT I’M GONNA GIVE THIS ONE 100 BOOM cuz everyone needs to try it at least once.

from the website:
1. lapsang souchong – famously smoky aroma and flavor. clean and slightly cool smokiness in the aroma, like menthol. Sweet, refreshing smoky flavor, crisp and edgy.

2. candy cane – Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with minty candy canes.

3. ginger – Fresh, warming heat of ginger with the rich tang of Ceylon black tea.

GROWL!

I should try the package of this that I have. I’m a bit concerned because there’s a lot of individual ingredients that I don’t like in it. :(

Shmiracles

well, that would make me apprehensive too. i personally do like lapsang, especially when it is mixed with something. i basically do like all the ingredients in this, i just would NEVER consider putting them together. i am amazed that it works on every sip. so glad i bought this tea on a 50% fandom influence.

It sounds intriguing. Also, I like the smaug fan art.

Shmiracles

not exactly related,…ok not related at all
do NOT go to etsy and look up tea cups. you’ll end up poor. and with lots of tea cups.

ashmanra

Of course, I am on my way to etsy right now….

CrowKettle

I love the smaug art too, and etsy is something I never should have stumbled upon.

Shmiracles

if you buy anything tea related from etsy can i see?!?!?

Shmiracles

damnit. i only have one cup of this tea left!!
will i dare try to place an order for just ONE bag of tea? is that even humanly possible?

Shmiracles

IKR those are so cute! (but too expensive really.) (but totally cute i love them lots)

Starfevre

If I wore jewelry other than extremely delicate tiny stuff, those would totally be on my list.

The other day my father asked me “so when is my smaug coming in?” And I told him, “what do you mean ‘when is it coming in?’ did you order any??” My parents are getting to accustomed to freebies. haha. Lucky for him moraiwe offered to send her left over bag of plain Lapsang Souchong.

So…I wasn’t really that interested in trying this one, until I read your review(s) of it! AND there just happens to be a sample of it in the TTB-A. So it’s on…probably tomorrow though.

whatshesaid

I still can’t get over the smell of this, lol. I will try it dammit, I will! Just sounds so bizarre!!

Shelley_Lorraine

it was. . .an experience. . .at least. I felt like surviving this tea was to undergo some kind of tea initiation ritual. (^^)

moraiwe

Oh man. I feel like Smaug after I drink plain Lapsang Souchong. Like I could burp a campfire or something. This blend is hardcore intimidating. :O
