From Grey's Teas

A most unusual tea combining the earthy characterisics of Formosa’s oolongs with the pinewood aromas of Fujian Lapsang Souchongs. The typically course yet deep brown leaf produces a wonderfully balanced and subtley smokey tea that is most appealing.

This is very interesting and I really like it! It’s beautiful and somewhat juicy like formosa oolong but it’s darker and sturdy like lapsang souchong. This is a nice combo of opposites. Pine, wood, smoky, slightly juicy. What a neat offering!

Backlog:

This is a really different tea. It has a strong smoky presence, as I would expect anything that has “Lapsang” in the name of it … but it’s not like a typical Chinese Lapsang Souchong. Instead, it is a Formosa Black tea (Taiwan) that has been prepared in the traditional Lapsang Souchong style, so it has the strong smoky presence, but the tea base is a little different.

It’s unique and unusual … but I like it!
