Here is what I think

It’s been a while since I’ve had another Lapsang tea, the first expérience was not the best, so I was a bit shy on trying this however, I was pleasantly surprised and feel that all Lapsangs should have this same affect and appeal.

The smell is more like a cigar shoppe or smokey fire, and a bit antiseptic. It’s surprisingly a mellow tea.


What I liked

By far I’m so surprised and feel this is a favorite Lapsang right now perferctly balanced. I’m highly impressed with this tea.


What I did not like

Nothing.. and you know I dig for things to be wrong or remotely negative to share with you. If you are looking for a nice wake up that slowly moves you into morning, this is it!


Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!


P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instruction chart below to help you brew your teas.
