Premium Lapsang Souchong, 17 Jan 2016
by Knut Jacobsen from Oslo Norway

It's getting harder and harder to find a decent lapsang souchong these days. A lot of very reasonable offerings are on the market, but from my experience most of them are overly-smoked and uninteresting. I'm a big fan of smoke in general (Islay whisky, Xiaguan puer, you name it), but most lapsang souchong's just come off as unbalanced/harsh, thin and based on very bad tea material.

Not so with this one. It's the best I've been able to find so far, and while it's more expensive than other lapsang's I've tried, the quality more than makes up for the price tag. It has a wonderful balance between smoke and sweetness, a full body, and a good endurance. Provided one is not too greedy with the amount of leaves used, it can easily deliver 4-5 very solid steeps, much more than any other lapsang souching I have tried (where brewing gongfu-style immediately reveals all the weaknesses of the tea material). Highly recommended!
