I have had this almost as long as I have been drinking loose leaf. Rare Tea Republic was the first tea place I ordered from other than The London Tea Room when I first started my loose leaf experience.
I don’t know why I never put down any tasting notes before – maybe I never actually tasted it. The little sample bag was open and there was not a lot of leaf left so I must have. Maybe I just didn’t know what to think of it back then five whole months ago lol.
My how we can learn so much in a short period of time.
I love this tea.
I have no idea if it is still available or not but in my list for shopping it goes and when the time is right I may have to seek it out and make an order!
Indeed there is a smoky bacon flavor to it – not the bacon itself but the smoky flavor that some bacon has – when it is smoked LOL.
Yes a bit BBQ ish but not BBQ Sauce.
A woodsy taste … hickory perhaps….very good.
This is absolutely an Autumn tea!
The aftertaste is just the tea base 100% Assam good and strong.
The smokey flavor rolls around on the tongue then dissipates magically leaving only the assam base behind. MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
More please.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
