Got to say that I am a Islay Whisky fan and I love my smoked Bamberg beers. So I was expecting to like this. In fact this little box of tea on my local Tesco supermarket shelf has got be interested in tea other than Yorkshire Tea. So begins my newbie trip after rating a few random boxes in my cupboard that have built up over the past few months with no consideration.
On opening the box I got the aroma of Laphroiag or Highland Park, just a hint of it and no where near a Lagavulin. After brewing it, the aroma wilted a little to a moderate smokiness. The tea is Amber in colour. The taste is cigar, leather jockstrap and some wood and earth. Good stuff. Certainly an experience for someone like me.
