Lapsang, oolong, and pu-erh is not a combination I would have ever thought of! The dry sachet smells intensely of pine smoke in that lapsang way, with just a tiny bit of oolong roastiness in the undertone. The smokiness persists after steeping, which produces a very dark brew. Initially this tasted like a typical lapsang with no additives, with very forward smoke notes and a slightly sweet aftertaste. After cooling a bit, an earthiness from the pu-erh comes out, and it becomes a “chewier” tea with substantial texture. The smokiness from the lapsang isn’t really mellowed out by the pu-erh backdrop and actually becomes harsher against it. I enjoy a good lapsang, and this concept is interesting, but it’s not the most harmonious presentation.
