A lovely tea, mellow, and complex, among my favorite Lapsang Souchongs ever sampled. Thank you again to TeaVivre for the sample! This is a traditional Chinese lapsang souchong, it lacks the strong smoky aroma that the more widely-known style of tea popular in the West has. Compared to other traditional Lapsang Souch...Read Full Review

Excellent.Read Full Review
This is the traditional Chinese Lapsang Souchong, subtle, not the British-style stuff with the overwhelming smell of campfire smoke. I love it. I've only ever tried one other Lapsang Souchong on par with this, the Lapsang Souchong Superior Grade from Life In Teacup. This tea was equally exquisite, yet ...

The aroma is very much so a pine smoke heavy black tea, lots of pine smoke goodness and a rich malt. There are also notes of molasses and roasted peanuts which blends really well with the pine resin and smoke.Read Full Review
The first steep is quite smooth and very light. The taste is subtly sweet with notes of pine sap and sweet ...

Sorry - I just don't care for Lapsang Souchang (smoked) teas in general - and Ito En's is no exception - but that said - if you like smokey back teas with a strong aroma and a full-body when brewed (best served hot - it's just not an "icing" tea) - give Ito En's a try.Read Full Review

The dry leaf smells strongly of pine smoke, more like the British style of Lapsang Souchong, which I find is often overly smoky. But upon brewing, this tea's smokiness mellows out considerably. There's still a lot of that campfire or wood smoke smell, but it doesn't overwhelm.Read Full Review

Life in Teacup sent me a sample of this tea even though it had been discontinued from their catalogue; now, their only Lapsang Souchong is the Lapsang Souchong Superior Grade.Read Full Review
I can see why they discontinued this one: while it was not bad, I thought it was nowhere near as good as the superior grade. Even with the h...

This was the first traditional Lapsang Souchong that I've tried, and I must say, I'm a tremendous fan. It is among my favorite Chinese black teas that I have sampled. Yet another impressive tea from Life in Teacup.Read Full Review
Although there is a hint of pine evident in the aroma, the overwhelming smokiness characteristic of ...

I always get excited when I see brands carry Lapsang Souchong, mostly because I can't imagine their consumer base for it is very large. Read Full Review
Numi's always tends to be pretty satisfying if not a bit thin and their Smoky Tarry blend is no exception. They really play up the smokey-ness in the aroma but then you take a sip ...

I love Lapsang Souchong and Lupicia don't do it any harm! A wonderful smokey aroma and rich flavor without any sour aftertaste. Really satisfying overall, and good with milk too!Read Full Review

note: this is the only lapsang souchong i've tried.Read Full Review
very powerful in both flavor and aroma. a very smokey smell. many people i've offered it to told me it smells like a camp fire. i definitely smell the terpenes (chemicals from the pine wood).
i am a big fan of this tea, but it is definitely not for everyone. ...
