2 Tasting Notes

85

Mmmm. Despite Christmas being over I decided to open this sample today and boy is it nice. The tea was not as spicy as the leaves smelled, but there was still plenty to it. The sweetness was a little more subtle; I decided to add a bit of sugar after a few sips and that REALLY amped up the tastiness for me.

This was my first lapsang souchong and…it looks like they’re not for me. The smoky smell was too much for me to be able to sip it from a mug, and while the taste was pretty OK when i sipped it from a spoon like soup, it was nothing to fall in love with. Also, the smell clung really strongly to my ingenuiTEA.

No rating since I think this is a case of “it’s not tea, it’s me”. I might try this tea again another week, see if it strikes me better
