well….it’s ok. i agree with others that the smoky flavor overwhelms the others. i found by adding a little sugar the smoke dissipated a little, letting some of the other flavor come out. still, just too much. after i added some milk (gasp!) was quite drinkable, not a bad cuppa for an afternoon, but not a favorite.

ON EDIT: second steeping waited a day, with the damp leaves left in empty pot overnight in fridge – steeped about 4 minutes, it was this time a very nice, boring black tea. most smokey flavor was gone, just a pleasant but not astounding flavor. milk and sugar helped. eh.
