I guess this is the first time I’m finally getting around to reviewing this tea?
Although I would normally gongfu it, today I went with Ms Stacy’s suggested brewing, mainly because I am suppose to be working on a project. Tomorrow evening I’m going into the recording studio with a local songwriter to add some harp tracks to one of his songs, and hence I’m going with the easier (less time consuming) brewing parameters, and just stopping by here to say that it makes for a decent cup! It doesn’t really seem all that smokey to me in the taste or aroma, however it does leave a certain smokey sensation behind in the palate & sinuses, and that’s interesting! It has a rich comforting qaality, a certain tanginess, and flavorwise, it’s very woodsy, and I can picture myself on a cool fall day, with a crackling fire, wrapped up in a blanky, wearing homemade wool sox, sipping comfort.
Now I’d better get back to work!
