This is not a sipdown. I realized I wanted something smokey with my dinner. It just seemed like it would add a nice dimension to the meal. Plus, I have this amazing box of teas from my swap with TeaExplorer, & I was dying to try one of them! So I’m trying this one! And before I say anything else, I want to say, “Thank you!”.

It’s quite tasty! Right now, I feel like the level of smoke is perfect on this cup. With some lapsangs, you have the BBQ thing going on, and the only thing you really get is lots of smoke. When I was a kid, we BBQed a lot, & no matter where I stood, the smoke was always in my face. My dad used to say, “Smoke follows Beauty.” :\
This is not one of THOSE teas. Sure, there’s smoke, & it’s at a realistic level, but there’s also a rich sweetness beneath that smoke, & I am truly loving this cup right now.


Our family always followed that up with “and Beauty was a horse.” :P
