I tried this strictly because I have never tried a smokey tea and because the name was so bizarre. I didn’t know how to pronounce it, so I figured it was exotic enough to be a refreshing change.
I had some today. I didn’t hate it. But I definitely didn’t like it.
It tastes like a barbecue in a cup to me. I felt like it should be savoury, but it wasn’t. And teas shouldn’t be savoury cause that thought makes me uncomfortable.
Anyway. Reminds me of a Pu Erh brewed inside a barbecue and with an addition of hickory for good measure. That’s the best description I could come up with.
My first and last try of this tea.
