I must be growing up! When I first started drinking tea I didn’t know the difference between astringency, bitterness, and smokiness. I loved smooth Ceylons and other teas that had very low astringency best. I thought I didn’t like most breakfast teas, but now I am beginning to like a little smokiness in the mornings to buck me up for my day. This one has that touch of smoky flavor, but is still smooth and satisfying. May have to get a refill for this tin after all…..
