Smoky!!! Peaty!!!! My husband said that it tastes like Laphroaig scotch, and I have to agree! I began thinking it a bit overwhelming, but by the end of my cup, it really grew on me. I am curious to try it mixed one teaspoon Jackee Muntz one teaspoon Thomas Sampson to make a killer English Breakfast type blend for 16 oz of water.
I did another steep(at 4:30) and it tastes like butterscotch! I prefer the second one, my husband says he loves both! Either way, I think this one is good for when you are in the mood for something heavy, or in the mood for multiple steeps with a black tea. I would also like to try a first steep at 3:45/190 degrees for bake-y :)
Oh and my husband says he gives this tea an 88. :)
