This Tea Improves Winter
A pot of this tea shared with friends makes winter a season not to be endured but embraced. The smokiness of the dried leaves is overwhelming when you sniff it, but once brewed, it's subtle and settles very nicely behind the eyes.
Had this in a hotel and I had to purchase it. Love the smoky taste!!
First Time Try and was Pleasantly Surprised
The Lapsang Souchong black tea has smoked pine needles. I was not sure of what to expect from this tea as I was looking for more hints of pine needle scents, and I am not sure of any wellness properties. However, I enjoy what this tea does offer, a nice smoky aromatic and gentle smooth flavour. Great for the evening in or outdoor sip! A very good tea!
