A Lapsang Souchong, smoked black tea from China
Love it or leave it! With its robust, smoky aroma and peaty depth, it's no wonder lapsang souchong is prized by its adherents as the whisky of teas. This southern-Chinese specialty has a good smoking over wood fires to thank for its distinctive, full-bodied flavor.

I tried it, i can't stand it, but my sister stole my caddy, finished it and asked me to buy this again, telling me it as became her favorite tea.
At first I was skeptical about this kind of tea, the smell straight from the bag was also worrying, but after first brew I fell in love in it. It is not an everyday tea for me, but a treat from time to time. I do recommend to try it if you like black teas.
My new favourite tea! Well balanced Lapsang great for the afternoon tea :)
Good smokey notes, I love it!
Holy smokes Batman! It's a smokey, smokey whiskey kind of tea, with a beautiful amber color. Did I mention smokey? Extremely bracing and strong - not for the faint of heart. With added milk it takes on an almost savory character. Great on its own but would probably be fantastic mixed into some English Breakfast tea to give it more character. Or any other tea, to be fair.
