Royal Lapsang Souchong Organic from Bird Pick

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Fujian, China

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 6th, 2019

Found this in a Chinese market at the mall in Arcadia, CA. They had a huge selection of teas. I picked up a couple of ounces of this. It was priced at $30 per pound.

It is a very dark tea, black actually, and it has a heavy, smoky smell. However, after brewing the flavor is not as intense as you would expect. The br...

I had one called China Panyang Congou from Upton, which is also currently unavailable. I'm guessing this is the same thing. It is very enjoyable and tastes different from most of the teas I can think of. There is a pronounced barley/pumpernickel flavor. I've been brewing beer lately and this reminded me of the taste...

An excellent tea, with good balance between the flavors and aromas. A bit on the pricey side.

The aroma has a mild earthiness. The liquor is a light amber color. Mild taste that would be overwhelmed by milk or sugar.

Jun. 7th, 2018

This is a weird tea. The dry leaves smell like chocolate and flowers, but as soon as water is added it smells like baked potatoes. It takes a while to brew: I usually end up brewing it for 6-7 minutes the first time and even longer for the next two infusions for a total of three cups.

The flavor is somewhat unusual...

I am a bit of a connoisseur of Lapsang Souchong. I have tried them from many different brands, and I think that the H&S offering of it is by far the best. The smokiness of it is beyond fantastic and I think that it's just amazing.

As a previous reviewer said, Lapsang Souchong isn't really a tea for everyone - it sme...

Very nice tea! Tastes almost exactly like the wild lapsang souchong to me but is a bit fruitier! I will definitely be getting some more on Amazon soon!

Very nice tea! It has a strong chocolate taste/aroma and also has some sweet potato hints as well. Pretty good tea for the price also.

Lapsang Souchong is not a tea for everybody, and this one is especially strong and smoky, a great beverage for a gloomy winter afternoon. You can almost feel woodsmoke in it. It's too aggressive for me to enjoy very often -- I have to be in a mood for it. But I could imagine a bit of it blended with another tamer bl...

Oct. 19th, 2017

The dry leaves are a lovely dull brown colour. I just really like the look of them.

I'm having slightly mixed feelings. It is flowery as advertised, but it's also a bit "dull" in a way that cheap teabags often are. Maybe I used too much tea or let it steep for too long. Or maybe too many leaves and not steeped long ...

Jan. 25th, 2017

In my latest black tea frenzy, I decided to give this one a try since it seems pretty unique.
It is apparently a black (more fully oxidized) version of the Water Fairy oolong, which interested me.
I've seen that various companies offer black tea versions of oolongs such as Tie Guan Yin and even Alishan tea.
I've...

So ever since a local shop stopped carrying my favorite teas I haven't really purchased much black tea lately.
I've been impressed with this company's teas so far, and went ahead and added this one to a recent order.

The aroma of the dry, thin, slightly curly leaves is very nice...caramel and maybe a little fresh ...

Aug. 31st, 2016

This is a hard tea to review. I greatly enjoyed drinking it, but was not overwhelmed with uniqueness of any kind. Rather, it was simply enjoyable. The flavor has hints of caramel, honey, and sweetness with a slight astringency. The cup is very smooth. I would recommend as a black tea, but it is nothing unique, albeit v...

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...

This was the most disappointing pure tea I've ever tried from Harney & Sons.

Dry leaf not very aromatic, but the aroma is pleasant. The leaf is pretty, with fine wiry pieces, fairly finely broken...the faint aroma suggests spice and dried fruit, like fig or date.

The brewed cup is surprisingly lacking in aroma. ...

Truly superb! I haven't tried that many Golden Monkey teas, but after brewing this one multiple times, I think it is my favorite. Its leaf is packed with flavor and, although it had the smoothness of other golden monkey teas, I found it had a strength that was lacking from other examples of this style that I had tried...

High quality tea but quite expensive. Can easily get two infusions of great tasting tea. Recommend adding teaspoon of Tupelo honey. My favorite of all teas.

I should preface this by saying that I do not particularly enjoy black tea in general. Usually I drink white and green tea. That being said, I do enjoy this once in a while. The aroma is mild and somewhat nutty. The flavor is full and very smooth with almost no astringency. There are also undertones of nuts (perhaps ha...

The aroma of the delicately curling buds is super rich, with notes of malt, and different layers of woodiness. There are hints of sweet pine sap, cedar, and a pinch of sandalwood, it is very aromatic, not as sweet as some Jin Jun Meis I have experienced, but still pretty intense. The finishing note is a whiff of molas...

I have had this sample of Golden Monkey for awhile. A few years back I tried Adagio teas Golden Monkey and remember enjoying it quite a bit.

This tea really does have a comforting, golden glow about it. It just puts me in a good mood to drink it. I add a small smidge of sugar but it already has a nice sweetness that...

Very enjoyable! This is my favorite tea so far from Simply Good Tea (I've only posted two reviews so far but have tried a few more).

The leaf looks a lot like the Bai Lin Gongfu I just tried from Joseph Wesley: well-formed, very wiry, curly leaves with quite a lot of golden-orange tip. Very aromatic, suggesting dr...

Something fascinating and wonderful...a Keemun of top-quality produced outside the traditional area, yet in an area with a tradition of artisanal black tea production. Seems to combine the best qualities of Keemun with qualities of Fujian gong fu / congou black teas. I saved this tea review for last, from the recent ...

Excellent.

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 ...

Raisin-like, with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not something I'd buy for myself. Tried a free sample at the store.

Wow. This is on par with the Da Hong Pao I tried from Life in Teacup.

I was hit with a rich blast of cocoa and hazelnut. It just smelled so good it's hard to describe. Made my mouth water in anticipation.

That first sip was heaven. A decadent balance of maltiness and cocoa undertones. It was sweet like honey, and...
