I don’t feel like I’m drinking Mr. Morgan’s tea when I have this, I feel like I’m drinking tea WITH Mr. Morgan.

The only description on the bag is that it’s a ‘fine black tea’ so when I opened the bag I was not expecting a smoky Lapsang Souchong-type aroma. It reminds me of cigar tabacco and applewood bacon.

I’m assuming this is what Pierpoint Morgan smelled like.

As for flavour, I tried the tea twice before I wrote this review. Once sweetened and once not. The smoky flavour is certainly there but I’m still undecided whether I like it or not…

Because it sort of tastes like I’ve made tea from Pierpoint Morgan’s cigar ashes
