I have been trying to get my hands on this tea for months. Not exaggerating. Cedar Hill Homestead only does releases once every month or two, and apparently this particular tea has a following. I finally got a 4-ounce bag in my last purchase and saved it for tea night with my brother. It’s the first time he’s been able to come over for a visit since probably January. He and I both love smoky teas, so it was the perfect pick for the evening. Well, aside from the caffeine, which I wasn’t too worried about on a Friday night.
This tea is all smoke, wow. It definitely lives up to its name. I didn’t really notice any of the chai spices or other ingredients, but I was visiting and chatting while drinking. Next time I’ll pay more attention to the flavors. I have plenty of this left to experiment.
