This is a reasonably good tasting tea, but the smokiness is really quite overpowering. I much prefer a regular mellow oolong tea.
I was introduced to Lapsang S. in Cabo San Lucas-fell in love. The loose whole leaf is the best for all teas but, I do not want to always use a strainer. The Taylor's tea bags are so close to loose leaf. Amazing. WIDE AWAKE the rest of the day. I am happy that I discovered the Taylor's in Kroger's but, now I have to mail order. Very happy that it is on this site.
This is the best Lapsang I've found, I used to buy Twinings and while it's still good, this is superior. I usually have a cup of this after dinner and use a Lipton tea bag with it to make my version of Russian Caravan tea which I can't find anymore.
If you like Lapsang Tea you can't go wrong with this one.
