Dry – this smells like a more gentle black tea with a fair amount of hay aroma.

After infusing – hay and smoke in addition to the black tea base.

The taste is a combo of the above aroma’s in taste form paired with what reminds me of Formosa Oolong and Black Tea put together! As it cools naturally at room temp I can start tasting more of a crusty type taste in addition to the smoke flavors. The end sip and aftertaste is a bit nutty!

I’m totally diggin’ this tea!

Well I wish I had known this would be so smoky. In the bag it smelled kind of spicy, which was exciting because it is a Szechuan grown tea, so now I’m imagining everything grows into spiciness.

It tastes great at first, it’s the mellow taste that got me in the description on Upton, but then it gets smoky and to me it doesn’t match the rest of the tea, and so it’s kind of gross. It’s not like lapsang smoky but it’s enough to make me surrender drinking after three sips.


If you want to swap for the remainder of it, let me know. I’d be interested in trying it.


Definitely, I’ll send you a PM later!
