Probably not a tea I’d have picked up due to the peppermint, but when it’s part of a subscription, you get everything! It’s kind of strange… it tastes like a fairly reasonable minty black, but then when you swallow, there’s this poof of smoky acridity. Before then, the smoke is difficult (at least for me) to perceive in the flavour.

Honestly, this tea makes me think much more of (SPOILER) whichever dragon it was that was killed and raised from the dead by the white walkers – minty/icy cold, with smoke. As opposed to ‘Dracarys’, which inevitably makes me think of spice/heat and smoke.

May try this as a sweetened latte.

Afternoon cuppa from today!

Added a bit of peppermint agave to this, and it was an amazing addition because it actually upped the cooling, menthol like notes in the blend by a lot while also (because of the sweetness) taking some of the edge off the Lapsang in the blend. I liked that I didn’t lose the LS though, because there really isn’t something fascinating and delicious to me about the pairing of very crisp, menthol heavy peppermint and a pine-y smoke note.

You know, sometimes I see people write about good LS, and it makes me wonder if I gave it a bad rap because the only one I ever tried was Adagio, which I’ve come to read is some of the worst Lapsang ever.

So yeah, I read reviews like this and wonder if maybe I should give LS a revisit, but with a much better brand.

If it makes you feel better, it took probably a solid two or three years for me to find one I could even tolerate – which was a Taiwanese Lapsang Souchong from Butiki. It was pretty lightly smoked, and 100% acted as a gateway into my building up a tolerance, then appreciation, then love for VERY heavily smoked LS. It was deeply an acquired taste – which I think is the case for the majority of people who drink it.
