From Simply Good Tea

Smoky and dark, Lapsang Souchong apologizes to no one. Tea leaves are finished over smoking pine fires, which both dries the leaves and infuses them with their unique bold flavor. Mysterious and complex, Lapsang will confuse and entice your palate.

Caffeine: High
Steep: 95 deg

This is front of tongue dark. Orange hard in back top of throat. No middle tongue. The smoke in this is medium to light… A nice level for me as I like lapsang souchong but so often the smoke strength is way too much for me.

Purple-pink but solid, not light soft of pastels, and reds starts to spread more in the back top of the throat as more and more sips are taken.

It has a short finish in the mouth, but smoke lingers in your nose.

This is a gentle lapsang souchong. Not empty, not lacking, not light…but gentle. There is a richness that is soothing and while no invasion feeling.

I’d recommend this. It doesn’t touch the middle tongue but the front and back of the mouth get plenty.
