I had a break yesterday between all the museum hopping and eating around, and my girlfriend and I sat down at a cafe to get a drink. I saw a lapsang souchong on the menu, so I decided to try it and see how it compares (since I pretty much never drinks this tea). It was a tea bag, but of a somewhat premium kind, I think, using a silk bag instead of just a regular paper bag.
The taste…. well… the water was thin, the tea was a tad sour in the aftertaste, overwhelmingly smokey, not very fragrant…. mine’s so much better :p
So now I know I didn’t buy the wrong thing. Yay.
