A sample of this has been sitting in my shelf for about a month now and I’ve been hesitant to try it because the scent is so smoky, it’s off-putting. It smells, honestly, like burnt gunpowder and campfire. Which, don’t get me wrong, I love the smell of gunpowder – reminds me of the model rockets I used to shoot off in the summer, before the engines got to be crazy expensive. But I wasn’t sure I’d like it in a tea.

I don’t dislike it, though it’s not my favorite. It’s certainly not as campfirey as it smells, though it’s smokier than anything I’ve ever had. It’s dark and malty and a little bit chocolaty. It brews a darkish red-brown, and I think it would fit in best with a winter snow, a fire in the fireplace and a book I’ve read a hundred times before.

This is an occsional tea for me especially the smokier Lapsangs. It would be delicious with apples, cheeses like GORGONZOLA, sharp cheddar or swiss. How about toasted marshmallows?!

Some people like it in the morning with milk and sugar if it is salty which will make it a bit butterscotchy. Put some in the pot of water when you steam broccoli…put a pinch in sweet tea to smoke it a little.
