Thanks so much for this one Dexter3657! I always love a nice smoky tea and this one happened to be nice! I actually waited around ten minutes for the first steep, since I was deciding what I wanted this morning. It worked anyway, since I ended up using closer to two teaspoons because I didn’t want an opened sample of a smoky tea around my other teas. Steeped for three minutes: Yes, this is certainly smoky! The black tea at first tastes like dried grass which seems like an unusual pairing with a smoky tea, but it’s good. After a while the flavor of the tea itself kind of hides behind the smoke, especially with the second steep (just boiled, 3-4 min steep). The dry leaves are twisty & longer. No regrets on using two teaspoons, it actually works really well that way. This could be a “smoky tea” cupboard staple… there is one that I like more though because it has a natural toasty marshmallow flavor, but that one is impossible to find now.
