This was an unexpected olfactory pleasure for me: the smokiness is very fresh and “real” in dry leaves and equally satisfying when brewed – with vegetal and berry notes.

The taste is enjoyable for those who like strong pine smoke, which smoothly blends with bread, honey and berries. It is not very complex but is well put together.

This tea is a bit on the pricier side but this is what it takes if one wants to get a traditional smoking process on a good base.

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
