I have to thank Ashmanra for sending me a sample of this tea and joining me in our virtual tea party today.

I enjoyed this tea quite a bit. I took it black. It has a wonderfully smoky aroma and the first part of it’s taste is a laid back smoky flavor and then it smooths out to a honeyed finish. I rebrewed it this evening also with boiling water and steeped for 5 minutes. It still smells smoke but loses some of that in the taste and is sweeter earlier. I must say that I enjoyed it, as well.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

Would you believe I haven’t tried rebrewing this one? I will have to give it a go!

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
