From The Tea Farm

Lapsang Souchong is a black tea that is special because it is processed by drying the tea leaves over pine fire creating its unique smoky aroma and flavor. This smoky aroma and taste is exclusive only to this type of tea and for those that love a strong bold taste, it is one that you must try.

Temperature: 212F, Boiling; Use: 1 tablespoon per 12 ounces of water; Infusion time: 5-6 minutes. Please be reminded that you should always rinse the tea first before consuming it.

Although tea pleasure awaits me later on today, I started today with a new, to me, Lapsang Souchong. I’ve been drinking these for months and trying to find my favorites (that would be YOU, Narien, Upton, and Leland thus far).

This tea does not seem to exist. I use a lot of tea leaf==more than most people do so I typically use 2-3 tablespoons and I have large mugs. I use a spoon designed “for a perfect pot of tea” (it makes 2 or 3 cups). That has always worked out for me. Today I got dark, tasteless, flavorless water. Then I retreated back to bed in despair and slept for a few more hours and then tried again: one small (8 ounce) mug; two over-scooped spoons of tea-leaf (that would be 6 tablespoons). And the result barely registers.

This is an historic nadir: I’m throwing out the rest of the bag. I don’t think that this tea will do for those who like tea light on the smoke—this tea just isn’t there. I don’t know what is inside the bag!

Worst experience ever. At least with rooibos you know what you are in for. On to fresh fields and pastures new.

Doulton: I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with this tea – and it being a Lapsang Souchong too! What a bummer!

That’s one of the most horrific notes that I’ve ever read! I hope that the later tea experience truly is a pleasure.
