Its strong smoky scent stirred up my emotions and got me real nostalgic; it reminded me of my family get-togethers spent by the bonfires and camping under the starry sky with friends. I love to sip on to it leisurely whenever I feel lonely; it instantly makes me feel warm and cosy.

A sip of this tea reminds you of the woody smoky smell of the forests. It is just divine. The smoky taste and smell of the tea gives it a very unique touch. This is a great tea for those cold winter evenings. Tastes good if the brew is stronger than usual. A word of advice though, this tea is great for those who prefer strong tea. It surely is not the milder variety.

I have spent some of the best times of my life around fireplaces and campfires. With such a wonderful environment with flickering flames and rising smoke, a tea in hand would definitely make the moment worthwhile and Lapsang Souchong would make the perfect tea for such instance. Primatea’s Lapsand Souchong tea has small and dark leaves in it which smell a bit smoky. However, you will be completely taken aback by its sweetness which seems to be a mixture of spruce resin and tea. A cup of Lapsang Souchong tea will definitely refresh you up. Just give it a try.

The one and only lapsang souchoug that I have ever tried and the very first sip that I had I was completely bowled over by its taste. It took some of it on a hiking trip and the experience was just awesome. This tea is quite strong on its smokey aroma (according to me it is quite stronger than most of the lapsang souchoug teas) thus making it an ideal tea for outdoors. I had already collected some varieties of tea before I came across this tea and I simply loved the taste. From now on, the lapsang souchoug is always included in my collection.
