Lapsang Souchong elicits such strong emotions! I didn't hate it, but its not something I'd drink often at all. I ended up using the last of mine to make marbled hardboiled eggs... gave a nice hint of smoky flavor and a lovely marbled finish to the egg's surface. If you can't trade off the tea, try making eggs!

Just brew up the tea nice and strong... and after your eggs are boiled, pour off the water, gently crackle the egg shells of each egg all around the surface... put them back in the pan, and pour the Lapsang Souchong tea over the eggs. Let them soak for a while (I soaked mine for a couple of hours)... turn them a few times if the tea isn't deep enough to cover the whole egg... and when finished soaking, peel the eggshells, and there will be a pretty marbling of color on the eggs. Great for deviled eggs.

Not that you asked for a recipe... but there you have it. :)

Sorry, Lapsang Souchong is not my cup of tea. The tea taste like it is a burnt campfire ashy taste. Good luck on your swap....you will find someone who will trade with you. ;)

yours in tea

As people have mentioned its definitely an acquired taste. Its one of our most popular teas, but its not for everyone. Since it seems no one wants to trade for this tea I'll send you a sample of something else more to your liking if you [PM me].
