Review of Lapsang Souchong

10 of 104 of 55 of 590 of 100

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 smells like a campfire and tastes distinctively woody. But for me, that's part of the charm. It feels like you're drinking the warmth of a cold morning out camping by a roaring fire, and I love it.

As always, H&S offers a reasonable price for their more common teas. Not as good as some I've seen, but it doesn't break the bank to buy it in the amounts I go through.

While I don't normally recommend milk with tea, I'd highly recommend a (small) splash of sweetened condensed milk with this one. The colour should be similar to coffee.
