This tea has a strong smokey smell before it is steeped. I didn’t like that aspect of it, but tried it to see how the smoke would transfer to the cup. It did so more than I liked. I’ll finish this bag, but it is not a tea I’d purchase again.

I’m a long-time tea drinker with experience mostly with tea bags and lots of iced tea. In early 2011, I purchased a Breville tea maker and started trying several loose leaf teas.

I’m enjoying learning more about teas and developing my favorites. I’ve discovered that the Breville makes a great cup of tea and suspect I enjoy most of the teas I’ve tried much more because of the quality of tea the Breville brews.
