Lapsang is lovely.

Definitely one of the best teas ever, although its smokiness may make it an acquired taste for some. I recommend buying it in small quantities, as it definitely does not improve with sitting around. It is imperative to preheat your teapot and your mug, and don’t make this with anything but BOILING water from your kettle–if your water, pot, cup are not hot that nasty overtaste develops quickly with this tea. But it’s easy to brew it HOT, then add a little sugar (I especially like natural sugar here), sit back and enjoy. Nothing more warming on a cold day.
