From Teabox

A heady high-fired tea, this black tea packs quite a flavor punch and caffeine kick. A strong hit of tobacco and cocoa can be experience throughout the length of the flavor profile of this tea. Its liquor is smooth in texture, robust, full of gusto and topped with high-fired, smoky flavors that finish on a delicately sweet note. The overall experience of this tea is unlike any summer black tea from India but one that’s intoxicating and delicious in its own unique way

This is the first tea one could describe as " slightly smoky" that doesn’t taste like liquid smoke or cigarettes to me. The smokiness is very subtle — it doesn’t overpower the flavor, which is really more nutty. The product description calls the finish mildly sweet, but the sweetness is not as subtle to me as the tea’s other flavors. Or maybe it’s just striking because the tea doesn’t seem sweet at all until the finish, and then it’s a bit tangy or citrus-y . The “over roast,” as the company calls it, would maybe make this popular with coffee drinkers.

I used 212 degree water (since last week, I want to be more careful about possible bacteria in tea) instead of the recommended 195, and it didn’t cause any bitterness . Honestly, it’s hard to imagine this tea becoming bitter at all.

The tea is very reasonably priced, and I would try it again.
