This tea was a totally new experience for me. I was completely unfamliar with it. But, based on the description, I thought I would give it a try. It was great and I'm really glad I took the chance on it. The aroma is decidedly smoky. It reminded me of campfires from my childhood. The taste of the tea itself is very smooth and has a richness and fullness of flavor well apart from the campfire aroma. Very enjoyable!


I gave this away as a gift. Therefore I have not tried your Lapsang Sou Chong myself and cannot send a review..


Different from most teas I've tried - in a good way. Has a nice smoky flavor and smells like a campfire. Great stuff!

So good!

Very delicious!! I love waking up and making this tea for me and my wife every morning
