This smells soooo smoky. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it or not. It was one of those teas that I had a hard time getting past my nose. At 30 seconds, there is a savory smoke but not too strong. Similarly at 60 and 90 seconds, the background darkness is there and while there is a bit more smoke, it isn’t nearly as strong as the scent would indicate. It still never got to be really good for me – too much smoke. But very happy to be able to try it though the awesome generosity of boychik!
