this is a quite unique tea, it’s a nice EG but with a smokey punch, perfect if you want a pick me up or a nice way to kick start your day. Like the Earl Grey from Tealosophy, the flavor has a nice balance from the strength of the Assam tea & the bergamot when suddenly the smokey flavor brings a nice woody & earthy taste to it. A nice variation for a EG conservative like me :)
Smokey Earl Grey
In 1800 tea was taken from China to Russia by camel. During these long trips travelers would shelter in army tents, and gather round the fire, causing the tea to be smoked. These tea leaves were smoked with Argentine Patagonian wood and scented with bergamot from the north of Italy.
