1.25 tsp for 250mL water at 85C, steeped 4 minutes 15 seconds.

Wow. I didn’t expect such a creamy jasmine hit.

Dry leaf: brown and tan leaves. Aroma: faint smoke, faint florals.

Wet leaf: brown and amber, aroma of leather.

Liquor: tranluscent copper. Assertive jasmine aroma and taste, with a creaminess, and a smoky finish that could become bitter. I wonder what hotter water might do. I was torn about which temp to use: anything higher than 85 will likley scald the green, yet 85 is usually not hot enough to bring out everything in a black leaf.

Meantime, I love this at 85. Complex and surprising. Full marks.

A really complex tea that really speaks to its name. It has lots of really good smoky and bold flavour, with a bit of a campfire sort of smell and taste. It can get quite strong, so I don’t use very much at a time. it’s got a vague roasted nutty undertone, which was really interesting. Not a very accessible tea, unless you like really smokey teas

The dry leaves smell very smoky and like fresh baked good coming out of the oven.

The liquid does not taste very smoky to me but it does taste like an urban street. I can notice motor oil, bakery scents, petrichor, and what a busy road might smell like. Very, very interesting tea and I was quite impressed at the complexity.

Wow! That does sound like a really interesting tea! Most franchise based blends seem to me to be very much based on personal tastes and personal concepts of characters, but this one really sounds like it would suit Holmes.

If it has all those taste in it, I want some!

Yeah I was quite surprised. Some of the Murchie’s black teas I’ve tasted are overly tannic, slightly bitter, and get astringent if steeped more than 3 minutes. This green tea, however, is fantastic and I highly recommend it. It tastes like a paved road or an industrial area. I don’t love smoky teas but this was more of a motor oil or asphalt taste rather than the usual smoke.
