I got this tea because I liked Midday Flight and I wanted to try a bit of lapsang. You can definitely smell it, but it’s not overpowering in the taste. It’s like a subtle wood smoke flavor and aroma. I like it. Good with milk and sugar. You notice the lapsang the most, but it’s not harsh. It’s a different kind of smoke than I get from a Keemun…it’s sweeter and it fills up your whole mouth, if you know what I mean. It would be a good tea to introduce someone to lapsang.
The experience of drinking this tea for the first time stuck with me all day. It’s pretty cool that I was finally able to enjoy a tea with lapsang in it. My tea journey has come far! I might even have some tomorrow morning! Now I’m wondering what a full blown lapsang would taste like. Hmmm, may have to explore that. ;)
