Recent Tasting Notes


This is a small tin of tea that I picked up at a local craft fair. it’s a mix of black tea — oolong, keemun, and lapsang souchong .

The tea leaves has a strong aroma of lapsang souchong — a very strong smokey scent.
I brewed this in a strong Western Style.

The color is of a dark rich amber with a slightly smokey scent (I expected a much heavier smokey aroma, but was surprised that it didn’t have it). The flavor are hints of keemun (chocolate/malt) followed by smoky aftertaste

This is a very drinkable tea. I also tried a longer steep for a slightly deeper flavor. It became every-so-slightly bitter, but adding the tiniest bit of Hawaiian honey evened out the bitterness and brought more flavor out.
