MediocreMediocreNot Worth Paying For

I just don't care for smoked teas (lapsang souchong) and this one had an almost cigarett-y/tarry scent to it (more of an aroma than a taste - thank goodness). Just not my bag at all! And terrible iced. Barely tolerable hot.

What possessed me to try this? I should know better by now. At least it was free (had this at a hotel that carried twinings products and should have picked a different one.)

I think this tea is best if served with a meal; it would go good with cajun dishes and indian foods; something that incorporated strong spice such as cloves or ginger. Its an inquired taste, and it smells like smoked pinewood and can be overpowering and its not something you can wake up too in the morning. Not something you would want to drink if you're casually chilling out doing nothing.

I agree - I had it straight and on its own and I, personally, have never cared for Lapsang Souchangs. I shoulda known better!
