Lapsang Souchong is a smoked black China tea made according to traditional methods. The large leaves are smoked over fire wood, rich in resin, which gives the tea its intensive smoky flavour. Distinctive and delicious.

Don’t expect a lot from this post. We were out last night for a family occasion (a wedding anniversary. Copper = 12½ years. Yes, this is a thing in this country.) and although we left early-ish, it was still nearly 1 before we got to sleep. So I’m quite tired this morning after that. In Denmark, for these things, we sit at the table for a very long time and there’s a relatively long wait between courses, so that everybody who wishes to do some sort of entertainment, speeches, songs (we sing home-made songs about the center(s) of attention. Very, very traditional) what have you, can do so. So we were at the table for some five hours or so I should think. After that, they had a band for dancing, but since none of us are dancers and such and we were tired, we decided to leave then, having reached the point of too-many-people-too-much-noise.

So a cup of something fortifying is called for and the choice falls to this LS of which I bought a large tin. Without having ever tasted it before. With LS, I trust the type itself enough that this is not necessary.

This one is quite nice but seems a little rougher than my favourite from AC Perchs. It’s got a good amount of smoke and feels a little scratchy and dry on the swallow. It doesn’t mean that it has lost the sweet fruity note, it’s just not as pronounced. As it cools, the smoke really begins to take over. I don’t think this is quite as rough as those really tarry ones, but it’s getting there.

Very nice and just what I need.

Gosh! Seems I’ve actually already done this earlier. It must have snuck back inside the yet-to-try box somehow and I never realised it until now when I wondered why the slider had pre-set itself on 91. How did it know??? O.o Looking at the two posts, I seem to have had rather different experiences with it. I blame the second post having been made the day after a long night. Not the best of times, really. I’ll let the old rating stand.

Sounds like a really fun evening!! I love it!

It was quite good. Their oldest daughter has been in a marching band for many years now (clarinet, and very good at it. Recently also dabbling with the flute) and had arranged a surprise with the band leader who also happens to be a friend of her dad’s. It was only a handful of the band, but they marched in, played a few pieces and then marched out again. It was a great idea for her to do.

That does sound like fun :)

I loved reading about your night (and I can sympathize with being exhausted after too much noise/too many people….). The traditions sound so lovely and personal. :)
I’m not familiar with LS, but have a bit of it in my tea drawer (bought on a whim…). After reading your post, I think I’ll try mine today.
