Gongfu Sipdown (706)!
So, my Lapsang binge on the weekend definitely extended into the start of the week as well and I found myself dipping into an unsmoked Lapsang sample from Lazy Cat! This tea was amazing! I certainly expected it to taste good, but was blown away by the strong range of flavour notes I was picking up. Every time I think back to the session, like right now as I right this note, I just find myself drooling thinking about how good it was…
Not sure what I expected this to taste like, but I can say with confidence that “Banana Nut Bread” wasn’t it! It’s delicious though – mild astringency/dryness and nutty notes pair well together – like walnuts with the skins still on, with a hint of maple-y sweetness. Notes of malt, fresh baked bread, and very light creamy banana or plantain. Scrumptious!
