Lapsang Souchong

The smoky flavor of a good Lapsang Souchong is unforgettable. This is an excellent example of this large-leaf variety. Mellow tea which is low in caffeine.

Drinkning BBQ Smoke
Will – ON – November 13, 2017

This tea is Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength in a tea. Unapologetically smoky with the bbq smoke filling up the room but the base tea is quite mellow and smooth. I am looking for a lapsang that is more on the campfire note like Lagavulin 16yrs so the search continues.

Pleasant Smokiness

There's a mild pleasant smokiness to this cup. While some lapsangs can be forceful, this one has somewhat understated smoky characteristics and almost no bitterness. The aroma is excellent.

Enjoyably Mellow

A friend shared a sample of this tea with me and I couldn’t have been more happy! The smokiness gives this Lapsang Souchong variation the perfect edge without going too far. The underlying tea is mellow and flavorful - a perfect cup any time of the day. I quickly ordered a tin, and came right back to order a packet to fill it up again.
