This is a very smokey smelling tea. But once brewed the smokey flavor simply lingers in the back of the pack. The spices come out to play and the game is on!

I personally found this tea to be overly smokey, though I am not sure which ingredient it was that was overpowering everything. I tried lightening it up with cream and sugar though it did little to help. I was rather dissapointed as the other teas I have tried from this person have turned out rather well.

The smokiness was most likely the lapsang souchong. It basically smells like a barbecue pit on its own!

I’m finding I can deal with Lapsang Souchong in small amounts and when it’s not the dominant flavor, so primarily in blends, I suppose.

This one, while it definitely has a smoke element, and smells quite strongly smoky, it muted heavily by the assam and then the spices, while kind of muddled, come out mid sip. I get a little cinnamon and clove, but neither is very strong. The lapsang pokes out at the end of the sip, and lingers in the aftertaste; it’s my least favorite part, but it’s not overwhelming and isn’t enough to make me dislike this tea.

I don’t think I’ll ever completely warm up to LS, but our relationship is definitely getting better.

Lapsangs originally freaked me out.
“Where’s the Fire?”
“You BBQing?”
But then I started noticing caramelized brown sugar notes, at least in some of them, & maybe on days when my tastebuds were more lively or something. There are still some lapsangs I just can’t really get behind, & sometimes a little Maple Syrup helps, sometimes not. The Maple really brings out the brown sugar flambee element, but most of the time I drink them unsweetened, & sometimes I really love them that way.
