Dry Leaf: Very Good, Infused Leaf: Excellent,
Liquor: Excellent, Value: Excellent

"This takes some getting used to but once the taste is acquired it is a very good tasting tea. the smell is of the same nature. Cube mates often wonder where the fire is when I open up my bag. I had to tell them that it is just my new tea the first few days. It's very strong smelling. But it smells good and tastes good. Variety seekers may also appreciate the fact that it is unique in flavor."

"This is a perfectly good Lapsang Souchong - smoky, smooth, and lightly bitter, but not overpowering. Slightly aromatic finish."

3 out of 5 stars Jonathan W from Bethesda, MD (United States) (10/4/2014)
Dry Leaf: Good, Infused Leaf: Good,
Liquor: Good, Value: Good

"The dry leaf has a resinous quality, aroma hints of burnt pine. In the past, infused flavor is balanced smoke, but sometimes it feels flat on its own. I use it mostly as an additive to add smoke to Keemun tea, and in ice tea blends."
