With a name like Smaug this tea was far too tempting…I decided I had to have a cup as a companion for my first set of physics problems. The ingredients were a bit strange, to say the least, but I had high hopes.
And this is a very odd tea. It’s richly smoky – like standing near a campfire – and there’s an underlying spice and sweetness…it tastes rather like kissing a dragon would, if one were into such things.
It also tastes remarkably like my tin of Huber’s Shoe Grease smells – a little of smoke and an almost maple syrup note – and lingers on my tongue in a very strange manner.
I think I’m enjoying it enough to finish the cup, but not enough to make another one. Into the swap bin it goes, I’m afraid.
