I think I’m coming up against the wall of my own (present) tea unsophistication here. The flavors seem a little too subtle for me to care much about. I do like the taste of it, but whether its aroma is like wild peaches or is elegant and smooth with lingering sweetness—or whether the tea is indeed the transmigration of the body of the lover of a grieving young beauty turned into a tea bush—uhh…I’ll have to pass on that.

Like many of the reviews I’ve been reading, I’m torn on this one. I can’t tell if I liked it or hated it. With it’s piny flavor, it reminds me of the Greek wine Retsina, which I wanted to like but didn’t (I felt like I was betraying the spirit of Dionysus).

I have to be up front that so far I haven’t enjoyed flavored teas, and my taste buds felt offended by my first sip of Lapsang Souchong, but after a while I either got used to or or started to kind of like the flavors assaulting my tongue and my nose as I continued sipping this tea, contemplating a past life as a trader in a Russian caravan trying to stay warm along mountain paths.

The jury is still out on this one, but it’s not yet a big thumbs down for me.

This is a very delicious black tea, and it is pretty dang strong kick-wise. Since this is my first review on Steepster, and I’m relatively new to the ins and outs of tea preparation and drinking, please excuse any newbie gaffes ;-)
