I’ve tried this one twice now and as a smores addict (it is one of my favorite treats), I am (sadly) not really enjoying this tea for the most part. The most prominent flavor/smell is that of a smokey campfire, so that part is absolutely nailed. Beyond that, I am tasting pine and strong cinnamon without any of the chocolate or graham that I would associate with smores. It is an interesting blend and I don’t hate it or anything, but it isn’t what I expected. It does brew a lovely autumn deep orange with clear liquor. It is very warming with the prominent woods and spice. The tea leaves themselves are long and look to be of high quality, but maybe it needs more marshmallow root and Fujian black? Just guessing here though. I also tried it with milk, but without the cocoa or other sweet notes associated with a dessert blend, I didn’t find it any closer to what I was hoping for. I’m going back to my trusty favorites like GO and Cocoa Amore, which are simply amazing.
