“It turns out that the other intern who is working with me this semester and I have a lot in common, including being total tea nuts. Yayyyyy! Now we have stuff to talk about during those...” Read full tasting note
“This tea has a definite smokey/woody flavour to it that hits right as you taste it like Volstagg on a powdered pastry. I drink it with milk and sugar. Good for the days you feel like you need...” Read full tasting note
“Keep away from other teas, or else they will pick up the smoky smell. I prefer with some milk, on a cold or rainy day. This is not a everyday tea for me to drink.” Read full tasting note
“oh so smokey and deep, this tea perks me up on a rainy day” Read full tasting note


Explore the exotic with this distinctively smoky tea — a taste coveted by a 19th century Russian czar. His camel caravans traveled perilous routes from China, where nightly campfires added to the tea’s heady aroma. Our black tea blend marries rich Yunnan with smoked Lapsang Souchong to recreate this rousing delicacy.
