Been forever, past year was a tad crazy…
I tried the bagged version of this at a coffee and tea shop for free coffee/tea day. I didn’t really examine the package, but noted it’s by Twinings, and as soon as I opened it up, the smokey smell hit me. Wasn’t expecting that.
So I don’t know what I think of it. The black tea itself is decent. It’s quite potently smokey, even in its aftertaste. I’m not sure I want to taste anything smoked after the fact—makes me think I ate some kind of smoked meat. Will I drink it again? I don’t know. Most likely I’ll stick to Earl Grey, chai, and my other usual favorites.
I am planning on converting to loose leaf teas, but I need to finish up all my bagged teas, and I need to find my infusers!

I prefer mild teas, especially white varieties and fruity greens. Of the black kinds, I like earl grey and chai.

I have a degree in music education. I love singing and playing the piano, and someday I want to direct an awesome choir. I also love my faith, drawing, playing DnD, occasionally writing, and other things.
I’ve been married since July 2010.
