This tea always reminds me of home – I first tried it when I lived near their tearoom in Portland, OR and I’ve kept a supply of it in my cupboard for a couple years now. Part of the reason might be that my husband likes to buy in bulk and it’s taken a while to work our way through the six canisters he bought me one Christmas!
It’s overwhelmingly smoky, and both smells and tastes like a campfire. I like to mix it with other blacks, like a good Earl Gray, to add some different elements to it. Alone it’s a bit of a one-note but still a nice comfort. If you can’t sit around the campfire with your family, at least your tea can taste like it!
