I really don’t like smokey teas, and i never have, but something possesed me to try this one. Right when the package is opened, the smokey smell attacks your senses. I actually really like how this tea smells, it reminds me of someone bbq-ing outside in their backyard :) The taste can be a bit overwhelming but the after taste is quite delightful! it makes me feel like i just ate some blackened chicken, which made my tummy happy for a little bit until it realized it was being fooled. I think if you’re willing to try a smokey tea try this one first, because other smokey teas wont be as powerful as this one and then you can get a better appreciation for the other ones lol
Something i tried with this tea is using it as a marinade for chicken if you can’t grill it. Brew the tea and bring it down to room temp. Add it to the chicken and what ever other seasoning you’d like and marinade for a day. The chicken absorbed the flavor pretty well! So if you don’t end up liking to drink the tea straight, at least it won’t go to waste :)

I am a tea lover like the rest of you. I am in my 20’s and have been drinking tea since I was in diapers thanks to my wonderful grandma. Though the she only drank Lipton Tea, i have broadened my horizons to other tea companies, and have found a few that i truely love.

I work for a tea company, so i get to be around and work with some thing i love alot. i see each and every tea for being it’s own creation and experience.
