I will admit that I was a little nervous to try this tea—the sample smelled interesting, very smokey but in a good way, I think. The infusion still was smokey, but my first sip was sweet! Subsequent sips were “meaty” but as the tea cooled, the smokiness started to really take over in an unpleasant way. I steeped a second cup just to be sure, but I don’t think this tea is for me.
