A super smokey scent, yet the flavor is great! I always add a bit of honey and for this tea, this is the correct move. Great Tea. Great Company
Pretty tasty tea, not too strong not too weak. Will probably be getting it again.
The quality is incredibly good, and if smoky is your jam, you'll love this tea. It's not my preference, so for me it's 2-3/5, but my husband loves smokiness, and he likes this tea, so my rating is a compromise between the two in my house who've tried it. For reference, my two favorite teas from here are the Butterscotch and The Earth Kingdom (oolong & almond), so take my flavor preferences as you will.
Surprisingly good, first time I got any black tea that doesn't require sugar to offset bitterness, indeed has a very smoky flavour and scent - I will say that the scent of the dry tea caught me off-guard, but once brewed, the scent mellows down a lot.
This is a boldly smoky tea, bracing in the best way. Its a great tea for people that don't typically drink tea, exactly because it is so different from any other tea they'll have tried. Feels like a campfire in a cup.
