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 burnt pine aroma mellows. The flavor is smooth with a very subtle after taste. For me, this tea needs to be paired with food. On its' own it seems a bit powerful. I never use cream or sugar, but I think either would tame it enough for just a cup (or more) of tea.
