I don’t know if I necessarily enjoy drinking smoked pinewood tea. I mean its okay. I can see why people would enjoy it.. I can also see why people use it with steak marinades.. Idk.. I’m trying to like this.. I don’t think I do though. And I don’t think I’ll make a mission of it like pu`erh to like it because that I understood why people like it more. This.. meh.. idk.. not a fan. Rating based on User preference not in comparison to other lapsangs

While I am very glad I got to try a LS….simply due to it being a classic tea, I did not fall in love with it either. I might try it in BBQ some day.

Prior to deciding which teas I will limit myself to reviewing; I did try all sorts of teas:black, oolong, green, white, pu-erh’s etc.; I did not get to try Lapsang Souchong because I knew it would be too strong for my palate, unless dousing it with milk and sugar. I don’t do that. It is a good tea for boiling eggs with and leeks and such; and those favoring that darken rice with mushroom flavor might try using the tea as base for boiling the rice.
