nice tea! Review by Teafairy
This lapsang souchong had very complete dry leaves---dark and sleek, very impressive. It gave off a special sour fruitiness. The liquid is smooth and sweet.
A quality tea at a fair price. (Posted on 4/30/2013)
perfect Review by Daisy
I like this Lapsang Souchong! I have to say ESGREEN guys really have a good taste selecting tea.
This Lapsang Souchong has been marked as #2 but it's easily the best souchong black I ever had so far.
It had the classic smoky flavor, but not deliberately pursued. I have a feeling that the tea makers were trying to emphasize other features a fine Souchong should have, which is fruity and honey sweet!
It will be boring if you only got the smoky, wood burning flavor out of a black tea. And that's why I like this one so much-it was sweet, fruity, floral with just a touch of the classic smoky notes. Perfect!
I will definitely try it again once my new gong fu teapot arrived.
Exciting! (Posted on 2/28/2013)

nice lapsang Review by Erica W
Not as smokey as some lapsangs that I have had. It is indeed fairly tasty and goes to show that the smokiness doesn't have to be the main attraction.
