Interesting…. At first. Notes I detect are pine, smokey ness, wood, campfire, ash. Exotic and unique, I’d wanted something unusual and I got it in this tea. I just can’t think of any occasion I’d drink this for, other than maybe with eating smoked salmon or other smoked fish. I think it would complement it. What I didn’t know is that I went straight for the smokiest tea, maybe should’ve gone for Russian Caravan first as a more gentle introduction. Life and tea are an adventure so I’m glad I tried this anyway. I had a second cup (re-steeped) with honey, and finished it. Maybe it’s an acquired taste.
Edited to add:
Unfortunately I spent the next 3 hours feeling nauseous from the lingering “ash/smokey-ness” on my palate. So out it goes.
