Description: A high-grade expression of traditionally smoked Lapsang Souchong, with a well-twisted leaf and a smattering of golden brown tips. While the aroma of the dry leaf has a lusty, smoky character, the cup has a smooth, mild to medium level of smokiness, as well as a toasty note, which balances the cup. A connoisseur's Lapsang Souchong.

"I cannot drink this tea. It gives me indigestion, unlike any Lapsang Souchong I have ever had. The smokiness is too much and overpowers the leaf completely. It sits untouched except for the one cup I had, I suppose I will dispose of it at a loss."
