By some sort of magic this tea tastes just like smoke. :P It’s so rich and flavorful that I could enjoy it without adding anything else. Maybe I’m getting used to drinking tea this way. #adultlife The smoke is strong yet it doesn’t overpower the flavours of the black tea.

While I really like it, I think it would best be enjoyed as an occasional drink so that I savour the flavours. I wouldn’t want this rich blend to become ordinary. At some point I’ll need to pick up some of this instead of pilfering from my roommate! (To be fair – I asked…)

The smell, taste, and aftertaste are all consistent too! I hate it when a tea doesn’t taste as good as it smells.

As I emptied the teapot, I thought I would try it with milk and sugar to see how it worked out. It’s good, but I didn’t think the milk added much to it. Maybe with just the sugar?

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
