Dry leaves have an overpowering smoky smell, but don’t get fooled by it, steeped tea has a very complex and pleasant aroma with distinct black tea notes. This tea might not be something you’d drink every day; it’s one of those that you know absolutely positively you want to have. Other reviews of campfire in a cup are spot on, I can only add that a warm night spent outside with a cup of this will de-stress the busiest bee. If you ask me beats the hassle of camping any time. I can’t help myself but savor every sip I take, it opens up with new notes each time. Re-steeps well and it doesn’t oversteep easily first time, go bold or go home.

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
