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.

Hat einen super rauchigen Geschmack, wer dass aber mag wird große Freude mit dem Tee haben
Good smokey notes, I love it!
The description on the box is correct - you either love it or hate it. I see why some people might not like it but it's worth a try. It has a very smokey taste (and the smell reminds of my favorite Texan BBQ restaurant). MCKEAG'S LAPSANG was the first Lapsang tea I had and I loved from the start. I tried one other brand but quickly came to McKeag's
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.
