I also got this as part of a Twinings sample thing. Meh.
First impressions: Smells like fake smoke and leather. There’s also something that’s vaguely reminding me of the beach, but I can’t put my finger on it. And I just brought it out to my desk at work and everyone’s going to hate me when they walk by because the smell is so strong. Oh, well.
It tastes pretty much how it smells. I’m not a fan. This is the first lapsang souchong I’ve ever tasted, though. I’m sure there are better ones out there. At least I didn’t pay for this one.
Edit: I only managed two sips and had to throw it out. The smell is too much. And now I can’t get the smell off of my hands. Ugh.
Flavors: Leather, Smoke
