From Radiance Tea House and Books

An intense and unmistakable smoky aroma created by placing the leaves in bamboo baskets over pine wood fires where they slowly absorb the essence of the smoke. A smoky tea lover’s delight.

Steep Information: Prepared as part of the Steepster meetup and tea tasting

Tasting Notes:
From China

If the origin is Fujin it’s great, it has the most sweet flavor, use only local pine wood

Second brew is known for a dragonfruit or lychee flavor

The tea was prepared in a purple clay Yixing teapot seasoned for Lapsang Souchong – and so was sweeter for it

Smell: Campfire
Liquor: Translucent brown
Taste: smooth black tea, smoky, sweet
After-taste: smoky

Sorry my notes are so short and cryptic but it was a whirlwind tasting of so much information and flavor!

Rating: I am intentionally not rating these teas as I didn’t really have a chance to sit there and sip on them and think whether I would by them again, like to play with them more, although none were awful (1 leaf) or fabulous (4 leaves)

That’s interesting about the clay Yixing teapot enhancing the flavor!

I have an oolong yixing, and I really want one for Lapsangs.

Wow, if you would’ve told me six months ago that I was going to write that sentence in the near future I would’ve laughed in your face. I love tea. :)
