20 Tasting Notes
Right when I opened the bag, my nose was assaulted by an almost bacon/jerky-like smell, possibly like a cigar. Odd, but seems like it’d be good if you’re in the right mood. I steeped it with milk (hence the 5-minute steep time) as per the instructions on the bag.
I’m actually a little scared to try this because of the intense aroma.
Tastes a little like I’m drinking a cigar. Maybe if I sweeten it… Okay, I added some honey.
And I’m still underwhelmed. It might be good for people who like smoky teas, but this one’s not for me.
I actually made two cups off of one teabag and intend to use it again tomorrow at breakfast, since this is the only bag I have of this tea. It’s delicious! Similar to London Cuppa, which is my current favorite, but it has a little more heartiness that’s hard to pin down. Excellent with milk and honey.
