This blend is cozy and comforting, like a campfire. Smoky lapsang souchong blends with creamy black tea and vanilla oolong to create a taste just like a toasted marshmallow from a campfire.
This blend is the original offered here. Accept no imitations! :)
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
I created this blend at home and loved it, so I hope this blend from Adagio works out too. The smoky taste should be subtle (10 percent) with the marshmallow cream taste (20 percent black cream and 50 percent vanilla oolong) overpowering it.
NOTE: I updated this blend on 2/4/11, after trying the original 30 (lapsang souchong) blend. This new version should be even more marshmallow-y and less smoky. While I enjoyed the original blend, I think this one is truer to the name.
NOTE: I notice a lot of people having issues with the flavor - be very mindful of following brewing instructions for oolong. Don't steep longer than five minutes or else it will be a cuppa smoke.
