I call Lapsang Souchong "campfire tea" and I love its smokey aroma. Sometimes smoke is all you taste, but not with this tea -- it has a lovely flavour behind the smoke. I don't usually buy tea on-line but this was worth the trouble.

Jun. 7th, 2018

Buddha teaches all things in moderation. This tea fits the bill. The jasmine is just right, not overpowering, not hidden. It's a nice tea for reading, or studying. I got this as a sample in my last MTW order and will order it again. I like it.

I got a sample of this in my last order from MTW. It looks just like the photo on the web page, not CTC but not whole leaf either. Looks like it came from a teabag.

I brewed it 4 minutes using boiling water per instructions. It had a slightly muddy appearance. The main impression was astringency, that coated the ton...

Sep. 20th, 2017

Got a sample of this online. It's a very dark brown, with some gold highlights. Brews up a clear dark red. I'm not so good at describing aroma and flavor, so I'll just say it smells and tastes like really good tea.

It's very smooth, just a hint of sweetness with no bitterness or astringency. It doesn't seem to have ...

Aug. 2nd, 2017

This came in my second order from Mark T. Wendell. It looks nice in the tin, dark brown and gold mixed together. It has a pleasant faint smell. After steeping for 4 minutes it produces a deep red color. The aroma remains faint. The taste is smooth and very good with a peppery component that others have mentioned. It's ...

Jul. 19th, 2017

This is the second tea I ordered from MTW. It is not a CTC product. The aroma on opening the tin is earthy and quite pleasant. I brewed it this morning, according to the website directions, for 5 minutes. It came out a beautiful red with an aroma like, well, tea. The taste is a big improvement over the big brand teas I...

I switched from coffee to tea a while back. I graduated to loose leaf not long ago. The only loose tea I could find was Twinings English Breakfast, which I enjoyed. Cruising the internet looking for a new teapot I came across Mark T. Wendell, which was a...

Has a full, rich aroma. Good amber color. Nice, rich flavor. All the flavor of a full leaf with the convenience of a tea bag. I take this along to my favor breakfast place, I enjoy this more than the Lipton the restaurant serves.

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.

Dec. 20th, 2012

This is a very flavorful black tea from Yunnan China. It is complex and almost peppery, but not in the spicy sense. It is not as sweet as other examples I have tried, but this is not a defect merely a difference. Highly recommend.

Dec. 19th, 2012

This is dark and earthy. It's less brisk than Indian or Sri Lankan teas, but not sweet either. As is usually the case with this merchant, the quality for the money is wonderful. I don't want this tea every day, but it is a pleasant change from routine. Good stuff!

This Ceylon is full of flavor. It is an excellent value for the money and I could happily drink this daily. In fact, I plan on ordering a pound of the damn stuff next time around. This tea makes me grin!

lthough Mark T Wendell carries a considerable number of teas, Hu-Kwa is their signature tea. It is said to be "the finest obtainable Lapsang Souchong ... from Taiwan." And it is the finest.

The "Ne plus ultra" of Lapsang Souchongs. The high bar for all others. It is superb. Yes, it is smokey - that's what a LS is, but this has a sweet note to the aroma and that carries through into the tea, which is rich and smooth and mellow. It also keeps well. I have some I have had for 4 years and it is still won...
