I was immediately hit by the smoky aroma, but further investigation also reveals a peachy smell too. Taste wise it is unlike anything else, without milk it’s quite fruity, with milk, it’s a smooth, smoky liquor. However it isn’t long before the smoky aftertaste hits, and that is where this love/hate thing comes in. For me, I did not enjoy the smokyness, others love it and I can understand the appeal, especially during the colder winter months or following a big meal. For me however, I wasn’t a fan, but will rate this on tea quality and the tasting experience, not just on personal preference, so I conclude with the thought that every tea drinker must try this at least once, it truly is unlike anything else, I’ve tasted before.
