62 tasting notes

Mmmm…. dry, this tea smells like I’ve been running my smoker for awhile.

I actually took the tea ball out of the tea this time. This is smoky with a very subtle sweetness to it, with a smooth bitterness following.

I like this. I like this a lot. I haven’t had much lapsang souchong in the past, so not sure if they’re all like this (I got to try another souchong blend from this company, unreleased, that I also loved, except I got a bit of a rubber scent and taste from the first few sips. Then it disappeared into beautiful smoke). I’m curious to try something like a souchong/chai blend, see how I like a bit of smokiness mixed in with the chai flavors – I think it could be great, as long as the smoke doesn’t overwhelm the chai.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, and drinking different types for about the past 10 years or so, but only recently have I started exploring the different notes from different regions and flavored teas.

I’d say the water here isn’t bad (although a little hard), but I filter it anyway, just in case. I use tap water filtered with a PUR faucet filter in my tea and coffee.
