AMAZING! This tea has attitude!
Wow. I have to say, it has a super strong aroma, but the taste is NOT overpowering as one might expect. Rather, it’s perfectly bodied. Let it rest on the tongue and swallow slowly to enjoy it’s lingering flavor.
If you haven’t tried Lapsang Souchong, go to the local tea shop today and do so. This is my first ever tasting of this variety. I’ve smelled it before in loose leaf jars, but the barbeque aroma never appealed to me. Until today.
I have a feeling that this tea will replace a lot of my coffee drinking. Like coffee, it’s full, incredibly strong, and leaves you tasting it later, long after you’ve finished the cup. But it’s wonderfully spicy, smoky, and satisfying.
Pine Smoked Lapsang Souchong
Pine Smoked Lapsang Souchong begins as a full-bodied Chinese black tea that is gently cold smoked. It is deeply aromatic with the silky luxuriousness of the wood smoke and yields a cup of incredible depth and richness. Drink straight for a strong cup or add milk and sugar.
