From American Tea Room

Like Russian Caravan, Lapsang Souchong is a boldly smoky, polarizing tea that has devoted legions of fans and plenty of people who simply do not care for it. If you love cigars, smoked meats or dark roast coffee, then read on: this tea is sure to count you as a fan. Lapsang Souchong is the boldest, smokiest tea we offer. These compact, mature, spruce-smoked leaves from Fujian pack an astoundingly full aroma that can be smelled without even opening its packaging. Scents of charred spruce, pine, ash and cedar merge with aromas of burning campfires, charcoal embers, ashes and a sweet, woodsy undertone of pinesap. The color is golden and surprisingly light for such a full flavor and bouquet. Its aroma is true to the leaf, with an added complexity of delicate mineral tones. It has the smoky, ashen, full flavor of a smoldering campfire and a vaporous, smoky aftertaste. Pair with roast meats or spicy Thai dishes. Lapsang Souchong is lower in caffeine than other black teas, so it can be enjoyed day or evening.

Since just wrote about this one yesterday, I don’t have anything to add.

I have picked out another lapsang sample to try tomorrow.
