Hu-Kwa Tea from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

This is an excellent tea. I am not normally a lapsang souchong enthusiast, but this one is quite compelling. Smokey, but not overpoweringly so. It's rich but mellow, with a natural sweetness. Hints of cinnamon. I have tried both the loose leaf and teabags and they are equally fine. Highly recommended.

As expected the aroma is similar to a pine forest on fire, or a freshly paved road. For those new to lapsing souchong, it might be a bit intimidating. Those who are adverse to trying because of the aroma are missing out on a wonderful cup of tea. The liquor is a deep amber color. The flavor is nice. Once brewed, the bu...

This tea sorely disappointed me and left me feeling sad and empty. I thought from the description that I was going to like it, but the description was somewhere between severely misleading and blatantly wrong. Thank you to Organic Herbie for the free sample. But PLEASE, update the description for this tea because it is...

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.

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...

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...
