From DuvalTea

Every time I smell Lapsang Souchong I think of family camping trips. It’s that first cup of tea that you drink as you stand around the morning campfire on a chilly morning while you wait for everyone else to crawl out of their tents. You can smell the campfire and it just warms your spirit. When I can’t get outdoors to play or when my next vacation is just too far away I brew myself a pot of Lapsang Souchong and soon I’ll be smiling again!

I got this sample from MissB yesterday!
She’s lovely and I asked her if I could have like a wee sample of Lapsang because I’ve only ever had Lapsang Souchong in fandom blends.

This tea dry actually smelled very nice! I was surprised because all the blends I’ve had with Lapsang was very bacon smelling/tasting so I think it may be just Adagio’s tea that smells like that? Dude I don’t even know. I’d like to try other Lapsangs from other companies.
I was nervous for this tea because from what I’ve had, I never really liked the blends. But the smell is nice and mellow! I know from reading places that this tea is supposed to be super smoky and that’s definitely coming out as it steeps.
Oh whoa yeah. I just poured it into my mug and it’s definitely not bacon-y, but smoky.

Oh this is interesting. Not the best tea, but decent ish? Smoky, yes. Tasty? I’m so very confused with this tea because I’ve never had straight Lapsang before so I have no idea how it’s supposed to taste like! But at least I have a general idea. Definitely going to look for opportunities to try like single servings of Lapsang Souchong :)

((First one to review this tea what.))

(((Would it be considered a sipdown if you only have one serving of this tea? Ahh well, it’s a sipdown {118} hehe)))

Definitely a sipdown ;) I love lapsangs, haven’t had one for ages!


DuvalTea is a really special company out of Canada, and I swore I reviewed this tea… guess not. I’d say this is on the higher end of straight Lapsangs, and really true to form in that the process is similar to the story as to how Lapsangs came to be.


Oh, and if you kept the leaves, you can re-steep this many times over for a different experience each time – and thus partially why this specific tea is expensive.


Aww darn! I didn’t get the chance to resteep them! I usually do, but I think I was probably running off to class right when I finished the cup.
I was definitely expecting it to taste like bacon, but I didn’t get that haha. But I’m forsure going to keep my eye out for Lapsang, and I’ll definitely remember to resteep them next time :)
