From Culinary Teas

A superior leaf Lapsang Souchong offering a smooth, crisp, and heady aroma of an oak wood fire. A popular and certainly unique black tea.

Co-worker: What’s Burning?
ME: My tea…well, it’s not burning…it’s just a smoky tea
CW: ok…weird.

ME: It’s a nice standard LS I suppose…black tea – smoked…simple. It’s ok!

As some of you probably know, I am not a huge fan of Lapsang Souchong. The smoky essence tends to be a bit overwhelming to my palate. But, I have been attempting to gain some appreciation for it. And some I have actually enjoyed. They will probably never become a favorite tea of mine, but, it’s nice that I’m able to actually brew and drink the tea now.

This has a very strong aroma. Very smoky. The flavor is a crisp, smoky taste with a distinct woodsy taste to it. Like its been slow-smoked over oak. I can taste the subtle hints of oak as well as a faint note of dark cocoa. Beneath those flavors there is a beautiful caramel sweetness.

A very nice Lapsang Souchong.

I FINALLY have a Lapsang back in my cuboard! I have definitely missed the smokiness. This version is serviceable but not as smoky as I was expecting based on the intense bacon/jerky aroma. I will gladly drink the rest of this package because it does nip the smoky craving, but will most likely return to Upton’s Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon after this package is gone.

You can check out Dr.Tea Lapsang is 9.99 for a pound.

I want to try that one, too. I love Upton’s Baker Street Afternoon Blend.

HOLY DISGUSTINGNESS!

Ok so this was my first attempt with Lapsang Souchong, but OMG! I opened the package to sniff and expected a delightful aroma. Instead I got barbequed dirt… And a case of the dry heaves.

I gave it to the friend who so heartily recommended it. Evidently my review was quite entertaining to her. AND she got some free tea lol.

Never again!
