Last received sample from my order…
I am sad that I did not order whole pouch! Hmm, it is really delicious!
That says enough, right?
Okay, I know it doesn’t.
Opening tea bag brought me strong smoke aroma. They say it is pinewood smoked Lapsang Souchong; but although I want a smokehouse, we don’t have it. And I don’t know anyone who have. So I can’t be sure if it is pinewood smoke.
But… Brewed tea!
I expected it bit less smoky but actually almost all smoke flavour is gone. But some remained and that’s just right level of it. It was smooth with flavours, little bit of forest aroma/taste (I know you can’t eat forest, but you know what I mean with forest flavour, right). It!s bit meaty too. But that smooth taste and aftertaste…
Base tea isn’t much pronounced, which is bit sad to be honest. It’s smooth, but some malty or sweet flavours would make it little bit better for sure!
EDIT: Tasting note no. 600 !!!
