A sample of this was included in my recent order. It was a good choice based on my other teas. :) It was a good tea. However, even with filtered water, I get smoke out of this. Smokey cocoa. Not strong enough to be bad, but too strong for me to want to keep it on hand. Glad to have had the chance to try it, though. It was one I was on the fence about maybe ordering more of.

Noooooo. I hope I don’t get smoke. :/

Smoke? Really? Hmm…I haven’t tasted or ever heard of anyone getting smoke from this…that’s very strange!

courtney… if you do i have a nice toasty seat waiting for the tea at my place lol

My taster is weird about smoke. I get it in all kinds of things that no one else seems to get it in. It is more than likely just me. That’s one of the reasons I follow lots of people – everyone seems to have at least slightly different taste buds, especially when it comes to tea! It may not even be my taster, it may be my sniffer, which is very hypersensitive to smoke of all kinds. So maybe I’m just smelling something that isn’t really there and that is coloring what I taste.

Courtney

Sil haha! :P

Nicole I also get it in things others don’t. I guess we will have to wait and see. I’m glad it was just a sample for you, at least. :)

Hmm…I do sort of get warm pinewood in this one, but I agree, we all taste different things :)

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
