The smoke is still coming through clearly. Even before I sip it, I can smell the smokiness. I’m fairly sensitive to smoke, but not a single note mentions smoke as of yet. Le sigh.

The few sips I did have were smooth and had that lovely Assam maltiness, which was delightful.

Thank goodness Stacy has plenty of other amazing teas. :)

P.S. I managed 2 samples sipdowns yesterday (Glenburn Estate Darjeeling and Caramel Popcorn matcha.

Awe…so sorry it’s smoky to you:(

How interesting! I’ve never noticed any smoke and I am particularly sensitive to smoke as well. :) I will have to try it next time looking for smoke notes.

I plan on maybe trying again in a few more days, because I’m thinking it must be me. I knew you would have something in the description if there actually was something there. Bizarre!

Courtney-Well, it is pretty subjective. :)

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
