Sadly, not impressed. Perhaps it was my preconception – I had expected a noticeably smoky RC, a Lapsang-Lite so to speak.

To its defence, after the initial dissatisfaction with the gulp a buttery and a very slightly pepperish taste lingers on the mouth.

But I refuse to give up, next time I will try this with 1.5 teaspoons of dry leaf. Let’s see what happens then.
