Bom bom bom! Bom bom bom-bom! Bom bom bom, bom bom….
Smoke on the water…. and fire in the sky

I’m working from home today, so I can finally get to try one of my Damn Fine Teas (I don’t drink caffenated teas after work, or I don’t sleep). So I decided to start with Caravan. I opened the tin without reading the description and WOW, it’s smoky. Like I’m outside by a campfire, smokey!!

It was a lighter color tea than I expected once brewed. The aroma – still all smoke.

This to me is a real man tea. It’s not soft, sweet, or flowery. It’s warm, and slightly mossy (in a good way) and rugged.

If there are other flavors in here other than tea and smoke, I’m losing them, but you know? The smoke and the tea? It works. I don’t know that I’d drink this every day, but I’ll definitely have days where I’ll want this tea. I’m definitely liking it today.

Second steep, less smoke, more tea.

@Lena – I’ll probably try the green later today too – so that will give a little more feedback too. :)

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
