Tea blending experiment #2. Base tea is Lapsang Souchong.

Smell of dry leaves: exactly as it should
Smell of brewed cup: More LS, but you can still smell the other ingredients.

Taste: mild, but fairly spot on. And I’m thinking if it were much stronger, it wouldn’t be a good thing. Aftertaste is pretty darn good, too.

One of the ingredients is rather small, though, and tends to sift down to the bottom of the container. Not sure how big of a problem this would be in the long run (I just stirred it really well before I scooped out the tea), so it might be worth playing with to see if I could either get it to stick to the leaves or find it in larger bits.

I seriously did not expect this to turn out so well.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
