To paraphrase Faulkner — there’s no such thing as bad lapsang souchong, but some lapsang souchongs are better than others. This one’s dry leaf gives pine, menthol, and camphor, and virtually no smoke. In the cup, the base tea is inoffensive, but the effect of the smoke is weird, to the point where I don’t know how to describe it. It definitely isn’t smoky, though, which kind of defeats the purpose for me. Glad I only got a sample.

Flavors: Camphor, Menthol, Pine

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Copywriter, Eagles fan, vaporwave enthusiast. Lapsang souchong is the literal reason I get out of bed in the morning. I’m a big fan of shou puerh, Japanese green teas, and yerba mate, but I’m always trying something new.
