From Whittard of Chelsea

Beautiful openly-twisted black leaves with smokiness and a hint of tar. This is the best from China, where they make Lapsang with wonderfully characteristic body and substance. A few leaves make a pale ‘golden-grey’ liquor. Clean tasting and aromatic.

I made a pot of this with two, heaped teaspoons brewed for four and a half minutes.

It has an aroma of pizza base and ‘pine-fresh’ disinfectant.

In the mouth it has butter, conifer sawdust, wood-smoke, the basic tea-flavour, of course; but all well-blended together with none prominent above the others. There are tiny hints of mixed, dried fruit and cut grass and the tiniest ‘bite’ – something reminiscent of white pepper or root ginger, but almost more of a feel than a taste.

For purposes of comparison, I made this exactly the same way as the Nothing But Tea Smokey Souchong I wrote up yesterday. I strongly suspect these two are the same tea – both excellent, though, and among my top favourites.
