This is a sipdown. I didn’t care much for this tea at first, but I saw a review from Mark that said you need to double the leaf. Once I did that, I enjoyed this tea.
The sad thing is that after having enjoyed many cups, I didn’t enjoy the last one much because I have a cold and can’t taste things properly. I had made soup for my daughter’s birthday gathering and had my future daughter-in-law ( :) :) :)) taste it and she said it was perfectly seasoned, but when I tasted it I just didn’t get a thing. There was even a pinch of cayenne in it! And the tea was simply smoke and nothing else. It wasn’t the fault of the tea, just the absence of any ability to properly taste food or drink.
Ah well, if it had been a different tea I would have tasted nothing at all, so at least I got to taste a bit of smoke! Good tea when you know to add lots of extra leaf.
