When I bought this I thought it was a smoky Lapsang, it is a sweet Lapsang Souchong and it is quite good. It has virtually no bitterness and virtually no astringency. It is not noticeably malty. This is quite a surprise from what I was expecting. This tea is sweet and tasty. This is another winner of a tea from Streetshop88. There is no need to add milk to this tea. I added sugar but I add sugar to almost all teas. You could definitely drink it straight if you wanted too. It has a nice natural sweetness.

I brewed this one time in a 20oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Sweet

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
