The coiled dry leaves are very pretty and incredibly soft, like curls of fur, and would be a very visually impressive tea to serve to a visitor. Wet leaves smell like a barbecue, preparing me for a strong-flavored tea. The taste is similar, savory and smoky with a slight aftertaste of sweetness, like a good beef jerky. This tea could stand up to a meal accompaniment, I’m tempted to try it as an after-dinner dessert alongside grilled pineapple. A nice but not overwhelming pick-me-up, but could be too smoky for those who prefer more delicate black teas.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Malt, Meat, Smoke, Wood

I’ve been drinking tea as a hobby for a few years, thought I should finally start leaving reviews. I’m most fond of teas on the darker end – black/red, roasted oolong, ripe puerh. I’m no good at translating a review into a numerical rating, so I usually don’t give one.
