Thumbs up!"The leaves, dark black smell delicious of pine needles, smoke, and Grandpa's cigar. This cup literally makes me want to wear my large grandfather sweater and sip away with a cigar in hand and I don't even smoke!"

purearomalapsansouWho doesn't love a good lapsang souchong? Especially as I gear up for a North East winter. Pure Aroma is an online company from Germany that offers various types of tea for any drinker. I brewed their lapsang with water just off the boil for 3 minutes with a heaping tablespoon of leaves. The resulting aroma is very musk-like. For those that don't know, lapsang is a Chinese smoked tea. I would consider it an acquired taste or a tea that most fans of earl grey would enjoy. Lapsang leaves are smoked underneath the tea leaves typically with a pinewood fire. Some versions leave out the pinewood, giving a slightly different taste. We are unaware of the exact smoking method for this tea whether pinewood was included or not.

The leaves, dark black smell delicious of pine needles, smoke, and Grandpa's cigar. This cup literally makes me want to wear my large grandfather sweater and sip away with a cigar in hand and I don't even smoke! Lapsang is a typically drink I bring out to campfires with our neighbors, we'll sit around enjoying one another's company and sip the smoke with some popcorn. It's a great time. A tablespoon of leaves were used to brew this old beauty for 2 minutes. As I said, it's pretty much irresistibly good. Lapsang makes memories, especially for first timers. I'd give this one a shot, it has a nice balance between lapsang and pine. Yummy!
