Tea #1 Review – Lapsang Souchong

You may have seen my ‘Around the world in 9 Teas’ blog post last week, where I said I’d spend the next few days trying each one and posting my thoughts about each tea on this blog.

So, without further ado, I give you:

Tea #1 – Lapsang Souchong

Lapsang Souchong Tea

As it says on the box, this is a Chinese tea, to smell, it is quite earthy, and doesn’t smell particularly strong either, but pleasant.

How did I drink it?: This tea can be drank (According to the box) with or without milk. I decided to put a LOT more milk in than I would in a usual cup of tea – thinking that I would have less milk each time I drank it. I also added a sugar as I’m a sugar feind.

Opinion: Smokey. Very Smokey. Like when you go round a museum and there are waxworks, or the taste/ smell of a smoked cheese. Unfortunately I don’t like smokey, I was off to a bad start…

It didn’t get much better, other than the overpowering smokey aroma, the taste was quite bitter, even with the sugar, and the smokey flavour was, unsurprisingly present.

Unfortunately I couldn’t get past the smokey and the bitter and so I really didn’t enjoy this tea 😦 If anyone wants the rest of the box/packet, holla me haha, I certainly won’t be drinking it!

Rating: 3/10

Hopefully tea #2 will have a better review!
