Old Arcade Fire, nose deep in writing, and a stiff cup of tea. It’s like college again!
I got this as part of Samovar’s black tea sampler. Something happened with mine so that all the samples were smokey from the Lapsang Souchong. Everything in my sample got smokey (and Samovar had awesome customer support about it). I thought about throwing out my samples, but never got around to it. Today I decided to try the Ancient Gold. It smells more smokey than I like, and definitely has a hint of it, which I don’t like. However, the base is really good. It’s a strong cup and I get a hint of raisin. It’s good enough I want to try an untainted cup of this at some point…. I guess I’ll have to order a sample of this one!
