I really didn’t think I was going to like this. The other smoky tea I’ve had, a black gunpowder, was just undrinkable for me. This I can do. And I like it a lot. Some of the best chocolate I’ve had has included smoked salt and almonds, so I figured I would give it a try.
It smells like chocolate melted over a campfire, and that’s almost how it tastes too. But it could use WAY more chocolate, for me as it’s cooling it’s like the chocolate is getting lost.
I didn’t use boiling water, I let it cool for about a minute after it reached boiling. Not sure what that made the temperature, but I was kind of scared that maybe at boiling it would be too smoky or something.
Maybe at some point I will try straight lapsang souchong but for now I’m going to try that method on the black gunpowder and see if it makes it drinkable!
