Also when I was in college somebody picked up a box of Lapsang Souchong teabags for me which attracted a bit of attention from my friends one of which summed it up well that this tea smells and tastes like smoked ham. Then when none of us liked it after passing around a single cup of it we ended up dumping them in the dinning hall and then a few of us filled out comment cards complaining about the horrible "smoked ham tea".

Yes it was a fairly nasty box of Twinings Lapsang Souchong. I resently picked up an ounce of Russian Caravan (that is just another name for Lapsang Souchong right?) at a local tea shop which I found enjoyable with sugar added. Regardless I probably won't be picking up more as my current tea policy is that if a tea (with the exception of chai and breakfast teas) is not drinkable without sugar or milk its not worth buying more of when you run out of it.

I find that Twinings' CTC Irish Breakfast is decent. And, for a bagged tea, so is their English Breakfast. They're not my favorite, but they're not as bad as some brands out there.

Strange the time that I bought a tin of loose TwiningsPrince of Wales tea I was surprised by how large the leaves were and how they were so "big and curley" being that it was the first time that I saw loose tea. Then again that was just once as I did not notice any difference besides the added hassle and I gave up on loose tea for a few years afterwords until I discovered Adagio where I could taste the differencen.
