This is what I’d give to anyone who is curious, but intimidated, by the prospect of a smoky black tea. The tea within the pyramid bags is far from dust, and is light enough to keep people who know little about loose leaf from choking on an over-full cup of lapsang. That being said, it still tastes like proper lapsang, with that great smoky scent wafting from the cup and lingering on after the cup’s been drained dry. Perfect for tea beginners, lazy folks, and those of us who have a bad habit of stuffing the tea ball with too many leaves.
