Tea Runners carried another Lapsang Souchong that I bought previously and really liked. Unfortunately, it's currently out of stock. When I saw that this one was available (Lot # 7), I thought I'd like it just as much. It simply is not as good. I mean, it's okay, and I'm not going to send it back, but it's not quite smoky enough and isn't as tasty. I hope they bring back the other Lapsang Souchong soon - but until then, I'll keep drinking this one.
You are correct. This lapsang is much less smoky than our other listing (https://shop.tearunners.com/products/lapsang-souchong), which has been out of stock for a while but is about to be replaced. This lot (#7) is sweeter and more nuanced than heavily smoked lapsangs.
