I found this tasty but definitely not the best lapsang I’ve had by a longshot. It was pretty run-of-the-mill, not bad, but not really a whole lot better (or may just as good) as the standard Twinings Lapsang Souchong tea bags. It sure was smokey, but not with a lot of other flavours. I prefer Upton’s Lapsang Black Dragon which had some more malty flavours and interesting backend to it. This one is a lot of sizzle, but not a lot of steak.

Hello fellow tea nerds!

I’m Canadian and my parents are South African, plus I lived in England and Australia as a kid… so I’m rockin some pretty mad British Empire vibe and thus I’ve been a tea fan for quite some time. I am now totally hooked on loose-leaf. It’s super fun to try a bazillion new kinds of tea and choose the right one for a given moment in a day.

My favourite teas are well balanced, mild, maybe fruity/citrusy or with interesting flavours (eg: silk oolongs, grapefruit green rooibos, jasmine silver needle white tea, melon white tea). I also like a solid malty British or other bold style black teas with some oomph (eg: Yunnan Golden Tips, PG Tips).

Let’s nerd out together about why tea is so friggin’ epic!
