Just the right amount of smokiness, and it’s great on the 2nd steep. I think I’ll be drinking this one a lot.

THE RUNDOWN
Not going to do a full rundown because I’ve had this tea before. I just uncovered I still had some in a mason jar in a box full of mugs I’ve ignored for about 2.5 years. Still good, obviously: mason jar.
1) First Taste: I love the smokiness the pinewood adds, but it’s not overbearing (probably because this isn’t the heavy-smoke variety). I get a nice acidity too, but that may be because I brewed dark (5+ min).
2) Long Story Short: If you have never tried a Lapsang, this might be a go to – plus it’s available online if you’re not in the tri-state. They ship ANYWHERE. Maybe I’ll try the full-smoke someday, but for now, this my go-to loose leaf China black tea for any time.
