Recent Tasting Notes
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
I enjoyed this one. It somehow tastes a little bit watery to me – I used plenty of the tea, I’m thinking maybe I’d like it with some additional black tea thrown in. I appreciate that nothing in here tastes artificial – I’ve had a bad history of finding chais that seem to have red hot candies as half the content. I liked it fine, it was just somehow…lacking something. Maybe I would like it better as a chai latte or something? Nice balance of the spices, though.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove
Finishing this up! Starting weight watchers has refocused me on making sure I drink more tea, for hydration purposes, and I am so glad! The past two weeks have reminded me how much I love it!
This one is earthy and strong, really perfect for a quick wake up drink for every day. Not my most favorite in the world…but good.
Very thick and deep aroma, and it carries through into the tea. Very nice nutty flavor without being overpowering, great smoothness. Though ordinarily I’m not much a fan of chestnuts, this was really, really nice- and my fiance is very impressed by it.
Flavors: Chestnut, Dark Wood, Nutty, Smooth
Difficult to mess this one up—it’s straight spearmint leaf!
Tastes just like it should; it’s like drinking spearmint gum. I’m not a huge fan of mint, but this spearmint is okay if I’m in the mood for it.
Makes a good pre-sleep tea, as it reminds me a little of brushing my teeth.
