From Upton Tea Imports

The smoky flavor of a good Lapsang Souchong is unforgettable. This is an excellent example of this large-leaf variety. Mellow tea which is low in caffeine.

Similar in taste and style to Upton’s Lapsang Souchong Imperial, though maybe a little less spicy. It’s good, a nice solid Lapsang option.

I bought all of their Lapsang variants as samples so I could compare (fun!!!!!) and I think my favourite is the Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon, not just cause the name is friggin’ awesome but also because it was a more interesting twist on Lapsang. This one is very classic flavouring, feels like just a good quality, nice lapsang. But now that I’ve tried a few of them, I think I prefer a bit of a departure from the “normal” Lapsang taste (which is a crazy flavour anyway!) and a bit more of an innovation on top of it. So I’d vote for the Black Dragon being their most interesting one, though this was certainly great quality.

i went to my friend’s house today. we had a campfire and we made some of this tea western style with a big cooking pot for boiling the water, a smaller pot and a big strainer to strain the leaves in. this tea has aged for about a year, (well i think it aged and they say it can). so i think it has aged a fair bit. i can tell because the smokeyness of the dry leaves is a lot weaker but more in an aged way. the tea also tastes a tad weaker but in an aged way. the water did not reach a full boil but steeped well

my friend’s wife did not like the smell of the dry leaves too much (nor did their kids, who really did not like it and thought it smelled stinky) but said the tea was ok but shes going to stick to her teas. me and her had a small discussion on how this tea is made too.

we had no marshmallows or wieners today.

i had fun!
