Some of the best smoky lapsang I’ve ever had.
I really enjoy Lapsang Souchong – I have to be in the mood for it, but when I’m in the mood for it I CRAVE it.
This Lapsang is not too smoky; you can taste the leaf along with the smoke – providing a complex flavor that has not been overpowered. Well done.

Gongfu Sipdown (688)!

A super big thank you to Hachachacha who very kindly sent me samples of all the W2T Lapsang Souchong offerings from the monthly subscription box and then refused to accept anything in return for them!! Tea community people are incredible! I was feeling very sad that I missed out on this box; to be honest I really don’t pay attention to the W2T monthly boxes but I did know vaguely that June (or was it July) was a Lapsang dedicated month – but I thought the whole month was unsmoked Lapsang, so I was sad to find out it was a mix of smoked and unsmoked.

I really, really love smoked Lapsang Souchong – it’s a solid favourite tea type of mine!! I even have a yixing pot dedicated to smoked Lapsang. So I’m eternally grateful to get to experience this box and compare and contrast the different offerings. I started with this one because I really wanted to dive right into the smoked offerings, but I also heard from people who had explored through the month’s teas that this was widely the least favourite because it was “too smokey” – as someone who loves intensely smoked black tea I was curious if I would share the same opinion.

I’ll be honest, I found the smoke level pretty perfect. Here’s my instagram blurb from when I tried it: “Intense, full bodied smoke and leather notes, with an underlying sweetness & delicious lingering raisin and red fruit note in the finish!!”

So yes – it was very smokey, but that’s what I think a Lapsang Souchong SHOULD be. It wasn’t entirely smoke; there were other nice flavour nuances throughout the session and I still got to experience an evolution of flavour so I was definitely happy drinking this one! In fact, now I almost worry that the other smoked LS wont be smokey enough for me…

Have you tried Verdant’s Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong?

I don’t believe so! Is it comparable?
