One of the first teas I had ever tasted. Still one of my favorites. The smoky aroma when you open the lid is unbelievable, its definitely one of those “taste preference” types of things which is why I believe this tea has gotten bad reviews. Its definitely not the best quality, I have tried several others since, but I keep coming back to this one. Its definitely more smoky and a cup is so calming and relaxing. Try it with and without milk.
