I’m not usually a fan of smokey teas but wanted to compare this one to White2Tea’s other lapsang souchongs.

The smoke/pine is always present but not overwhelming (for me) like some cheaper smoked lapsangs I’ve had. For me the most interesting part of this tea sits behind the smoke. It actually has a really nice, full and surprisingly sweet aftertaste. It’s rather warming with a thick texture, slight notes of caramel and butter. The smokey bits still aren’t my thing to be honest, but I’m enjoying this tea a lot more than I expected, specifically when brewed gong fu style with a lot of leaf.
It’s not a tea I’ll buy more of but I’m definitely not going to have trouble finishing my sample.

Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Cinnamon, Grain, Pine, Smoke

currently obsessed with Wuyi oolongs, dan cong oolongs and unsmoked lapsang souchong (in that order), but interested in teas from all over the world.
