I just realized it’s been nearly two weeks since my last tasting note! Yikes. Rest assured, I’ve not given up drinking tea, just … have been otherwise distracted.
Heavily smoked teas like a Russian Caravan don’t usually elicit a great deal of excitement from me, but, as far as smoky teas go, this is pretty good. I enjoyed it.
I like that I can taste components from each of the teas in this blend. I could taste the sweet, wine-like notes from the Keemun, the rich, malty notes of the Assam, and of course the strong, smoky character of the Lapsang Souchong.
