Non-smoked Lapsangs are one of my favorite kinds of tea, so I had big expectations for this one .

This tea is very similar to China Fujian Basic ‘Jin Jun Mei’ from What-Cha. It’s less remarkably dry, but distinguishes itself by having a wider flavor palette, with malty and chocolaty notes providing a background for the baked bread and sweet potatoes.

However, the overall taste is quite muted and generic. Also, it does not resteep well. There was nothing in this tea that would stick in my memory and drive me back to it. Any other Lapsang that I tried was decidedly more interesting.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Drying, Malt, Sweet Potatoes

Have you had Wuyi Origin’s Wild Lapsang? I think it is one of the best black teas whatsoever, but if you are a fan unsmoked Lapsangs in particular, you should give it a try ;)

Sorry it was disappointing! I enjoy the unsmoked Lapsang from Teavivre. I can’t recall if I have tried any others.

I second Wuyi Origin’s Wild Lapsang!

Thank you for the suggestions, everybody. Thunsmoked Teavivre Lapsang has been my favorite for years, however, I have been looking for even better ones but probably in all wrong places. I will try Wuyi Origin.

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
