Recent Tasting Notes

The one tea I brought back from New York was this, from the Morgan Library.
It’s not very descriptive on the packaging (“black tea”), but it smells like a Lapsang.
It brews up as a milder lapsang than some I have had, which is not a complaint. This is a gently smoky tea, not dramatic, and easy enough to drink.
I’m looking forward to sipping more of this going forward.

(Steepster ate this not the first time, so apologies if I’ve somehow posted this twice….)

I don’t feel like I’m drinking Mr. Morgan’s tea when I have this, I feel like I’m drinking tea WITH Mr. Morgan.

The only description on the bag is that it’s a ‘fine black tea’ so when I opened the bag I was not expecting a smoky Lapsang Souchong-type aroma. It reminds me of cigar tabacco and applewood bacon.

I’m assuming this is what Pierpoint Morgan smelled like.

As for flavour, I tried the tea twice before I wrote this review. Once sweetened and once not. The smoky flavour is certainly there but I’m still undecided whether I like it or not…

Because it sort of tastes like I’ve made tea from Pierpoint Morgan’s cigar ashes
