My first lapsang that I tried thanks to the communiTEA. I was nervous to try it when I first smelled it, but overall didn't mind it. Very mesquite in both smell and flavor, like that of smoking meat over wood chips.
Tried this from the November 2020 communiTEA and I absolutely loved it. For me it almost had an oyster-like smell and taste, but as someone who actually likes oyster, I didn't mind it at all.
Had it warm and with nothing added to it. Very berry, but not too tart.
A good chai, but I would have liked to taste more apple since it's in the name itself.
