Still my favourite “cheap” ($5/50g) LS.

Had a good experience short steeping this today, got up to 9 steeps. I was a bit surprised because the tea is comprised of broken leaves and I don’t always get performance out of those. It tasted very smooth, smoky, woody, and buttery throughout all the steeps.

On a final note I’d just like to mention that I usually love LS, so I’m not sure I would recommend this to those that dislike smoky teas. It is definitely not nasty and tarry, but I’ve also tried better (and more expensive) “authentic” LS.

100ml purion teapot, 2 tsp, 9 steeps (3s, +3s resteeps)
edit: if anyone’s curious, the smoky flavour didn’t stay in the purion after a quick rinse for my next tea

That sounds awesome I think I’ll have to add this one to my shopping list.

Dorothy

It’s a pretty standard LS if you like that sort of thing.

The more I drink this one, the more I think it is way too sharp. I find myself cutting it with other teas to try to take the edge off.

In other news, I can’t update my profile pic. This has been true for weeks.

Kristin

Weird. I’ve noticed that the site is very slow to load too. I don’t think they are actively doing any maintenance on the site.

Jim Marks

Yes, their focus is on some other project.

LENA

I’ve noticed the extreme slowness too. I really thought this site was so cool when it was in its prime. I hate that it’s now on the back burner.

I don’t have any speed problems.

For a long time (like, many months) Twitter had the same problem with photos not uploading.

I love the smell as it reminds me of smoked fish I used to enjoy back when I was a kid and thus not vegetarian. This tea for me is a grown up trip down memory lane.
