I usually stick with Lapsang in my smokey boy dragon yixing pot but this is so similar/in the same vain that I figured I’d add it to the mix as well. It was a very, very good session. I 100% cannot resist trying a new smoked tea, so this was a huge inspiration for this order in the first place – I’m glad it worked out.
This one is taking me to some deeply nostalgic places. When I was a small kid one of my favourite parts about camping was dousing the fire with water at the end of the night and dancing and twirling through the smoke and steam – something about the combination of fresh clean water and earth mixed with the soft smoke notes brought me comfort, even then. I find the taste of this smoked black mirrors a lot of those smells and sensations. Gentle & clean woodier smoke with undertones of red fruit meets this sweet rain & petrichor sort of vibe, and it’s just so relaxing!
