From Tealux

Traditionally carried by camel across Asia from China to Europe, this tea would arrive with a signature smoky aroma from the fires that the caravans burned for warmth. Still popular today, the organic leaves are smoked over pine needles and yield a distinctive aroma that goes especially well with savory dishes.

I don’t usually mind smokey teas, and I’ve liked other Lapsang Souchong – but not this one. It’s REALLY smokey and it seems piney to me. Not a lot piney, but a little bit. I tried rinsing it a couple of time before steeping and that really helps cut back on the smoke. It also is less smokey and piney as it cools. The other thing I didn’t like was the charcoal (?) smudge that was left around the rim of your cup. Too smokey when I have charcoal bits in my cup.


Perhaps the “superior” aspect is that its smokiness surpasses all other Lapsang Souchong teas :P


LOL I thought the “superior” might be the PINE
