It’s the beggining of a busy week for me and I’m already feeling I’m not going to get it all acomplished. So what am I going to do…. Procrastinate…. Maybe…. Later probably….

I must say that Kappy’s was for a very long time a second home for me. The former owners I saw more than my own family and I now count as friends. As such under new ownership my patronage had waned but I’m back for the first time in what must be close to six months.

I walk in the door and find the tea, lapsang souchong, and place my order. Without a word my old cup is brought to me (a present from the_devotea look him up) that I’ve left here for what must be years now. Not long after a huge 1L pot is brought to the table, i must say my first thought was that it would be too much water but it was perfect. The pot steeped for 4 minutes or so before I poured. As I do the comforting smokiness wafts from the cup.

The liqour dark red has a spicy and smokey aroma. It’s a well balenced tea as the bitter tannins work with the smoke to develop on the palate. This tea is everything I look for in a lapsang souchong. However.
The tea has been allowed to sit too long in the shop and slot of the bite has gone. Still nice but it’s not as good as it can be. Maybe a fresh tea might score higher. Still worth the price at $4.
