Dry leaves smell airy and slightly charred. As it infuses the liquid smells more of a smokey tea. Then afterwards it’s very slightly smokey and mostly black tea type smelling aroma.

The taste is fairly light smoke at first but then malty and light. It’s surprisingly semi-sweet, semi-mellow, and a little smokey. I really like this one the more I drink it. A nice Mellow to Medium Black.


I have been curious to try this tea company as it was recommened in the H&S tea book….

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!

This is a very lovely black tea. There are notes of smoke (but I like it!) and an earthy quality. Neither of these two attributes are off-putting to me though. It has a very deep, almost Assam-like quality to this tea – malty and somewhat chewy. Very nice!
