I steeped this for 12 minutes by mistake.


(This is not a tea that oversteeps well). I took a sip and it burned my mouth with all the smoke. I had to dump it, and I wasn’t ready to try that again)


Gah. I’ve actually been nervous to try a smoky tea but I’ll remember not to oversteep it under any circumstances now haha!


That sounds like quite the experience! This kind of tea is usually potent enough even when you understeep it.


would have made an excellent marinade for beef! lol


Courtney – they are polarizing teas. I like them, but understand why people wouldn’t.

CrowKettle- it WAS potent. My tester sip was so intense I didn’t even want to try to make another cup. Just kept movinh!

IndigoBloom- that’s a great idea
I’ve never experimented with tea and cooking.




I like smoky teas with milk/sugar, so I probably would have just doctored it up and drank it anyways! No way I would have tried it straight though, haha.

This is such a wonderful warming tea. I love how it just kicks around in my mouth with no rush to leave, oh so nice and smokey goodness.

I resteeped this, too, which I rarely do & it’s still wonderful.

I should probably stop resteeping my non-oolong teas or I will never drink them all before they go stale!


It’s probably a sign of my deadened taste buds but resteeps always taste bleh to me. (Except this one, because it’s a pretty powerful tea!) I haven’t had the oolong yet, though.

Another update from the library. My aunt sent up this tea and Tea Desire’s Earl Grey. The earl grey isn’t anything special—I didn’t expect it to be—but I’m pleasantly surprised by this lapsang. It’s nice—not fantastic, but it’s not sharp and burnt like Murchie’s. She also sent up a Britta water filter with the tea. I don’t think it helps the hard aspect of the water, but it removes the chlorine smell.

It’s difficult trying to keep my virtual cupboard in order. I’ve been keeping a paper log of teas that I’ve finished/gotten, so that I can update them the next time I get a chance to go the library and log onto Steepster. But work is fun. I need to take some pictures out in the field with my Libre.
