Like liquid incense
Lovely. Not too smokey while Still being floral. Like a gentle incense being lit, but on my pallette. Highly recommended if you've tried lapsang before. This is a whole different experience.
Thank you and love your description!
Having tasted a lot of smoked Lapsang from other regions for a lower price , I wanted to buy something from the traditional source to see the differences. I don't know if it's the smoking process or the wood but the outcome is really different . Add to that the quality tea leaves from the region and you get a very nice combination . The smoke is there but it is not dominating the flavor and does not irritate your throat like lower grade Lapsangs do .
I’ve had smoked black tea before, but nothing like this! This tea had all the lovely pine smoke aroma I had hope for and yet, the taste was clean and sweet! I’m throwing away all my other Lapsang Souchong, because after having this real tea from the actual source, its obvious my old teas are fake Lapsang Souchong! I got 50 grams of this tea at almost 50 cents a gram, its such a great deal!
