I was slightly leery of this when I opened the pouch because it smelled SO smoky! I get quite a bit of smoke in the flavor too, but it’s a mellow barbecue smoke, doesn’t dry my throat out as some lapsang souchongs have, and it really goes with the peach, which is coming through nicely. The butterscotch doesn’t really stand as its own note, but I think it’s tying the other two together. This tea is putting me in the mood to grill something.

I have fond memories of this one even though the first few sips seemed like a mismatch of flavours.

Yeah, it definitely grew on me the more sips I took :)

Aw, I don’t taste much with this one… maybe I’m not steeping it right?

Tamarindel

I think I just followed the steeping instructions on the package. You definitely have to shake up the bags though because stuff settles to the bottom.

I’ll try that. I almost had this one this morning. :D

But I MIGHT have oversteeped, by just a little? Honestly I have a hard time keeping track.

spices (except for ginger. ginger rocks)
chai (because, you know, the spices)
rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
