This tea is smooth but smoky. This is the very first Lapsang Souchong I’ve ever had and boy was I surprised (in a good way). The smokiness is strong enough that I’d love to cook with it. It’s certainly not for everyone, but I did like it. I wondered whether it is good to be ingesting this… hah!

Be prepared for your teaware to smell like smoke. I made the mistake of brewing this on my Breville Tea Maker and it was difficult to get the smell out. I’d brew this on a separate glass teaware. A good wash immediately and and letting it air overnight did help tremendously. A couple pot of other black tea did finally diminished the smell enough to not be noticed.
