Lapsang Souchong is my favorite kind of tea, hands down; I’ve loved it since my dad tried to scare me with it when I was a kid (“IT’S TOO STRONG FOR YOU, I GUARANTEE IT”) and I forced myself to get a taste for it out of sheer determination. I have the Twinings tea bags, not the loose leaf, and I was really pleasantly surprised! I’ve never had bagged Lapsang before, but I really enjoy this. It’s a bit mellower than what I’m used to, but the distinctive smoky flavor is still present, and very smooth and enjoyable. I like my Lapsang stronger than most, but if I wanted to introduce someone to this awesome tea without scaring them off (as my dad tried to do to me), this would be the perfect tea with which to do that.
