Lapsang Souchong Superior Tea
Lapsang Souchong Superior Tea is black tea cured in pine wood smoke. Powerful smoky aroma and taste, yet smooth and pleasant. A favorite among men who’ve never liked “regular” tea. Use one heaping teaspoon per cup and steep 3-5 minutes in freshly boiled water.
There is a great story a customer told me once about a tea room somewhere in California that was serving Lapsang Souchong as their tea of the day. All day long they noted the smoky aroma of the tea, and didn't think anything of it. Turned out that the walls were on fire!

I received this tea as a sample, although i wish i had ordered more, it is delicious! The smokey flavor is quite blunt, coming in both the initial aroma, and the first sip, as opposed to an aftertaste. However it does not overpower the taste of the tea. It's like drinking a camp fire!

I am purchasing my 2nd bag of the superior blend. I grew up drinking Celestial Seasoning's Morning Thunder tea and had no idea it was a lapsang souchong that gave it that distinct smoky flavor. I purchased the superior blend and was a bit overwhelmed. Now, I blend it with decaf vanilla, decaf chocolate, and other blacks to mellow out the smokiness. I have been drinking it for weeks now, and am just about out... hence my visit to the Tea Table! :] Try blending it, folks! About a teaspoon of lapsang souchong to 2 teaspoons of another black tea!

I bought this tea mainly for the boyfriend after reading other reviews. I guess he's not manly enough! lol. It's a little too smoky for us. It truly tastes like you're sipping campfire. A really unique flavor, but we have to be in the mood for it.
I love this tea but my wife does not. Maybe it's a guy thing, but the smoky smooth flavor while strong is wonderful with cream in the AM. It's also good for a second pour, unlike most flavored black teas.
My husband loves this tea. It's the only tea he will drink. He loves the smoky flavor and when friends smell it brewing they want some too.
