This has woody notes all over – from the first smell of the dry leaves to the steeped tea. The leaves seem pretty all curled up inside, but they did not fully open when steeped in hot water. Will try next time with boiling water.
Perhaps my palate is not well trained yet – but I could not detect any memorable quality to this tea. Not bad, certainly, but I think it could be better as part of a blend.

obsessive tea drinker since third grade. (perhaps slightly anemic as a result)

lapsang souchong fan.

i like my black tea plain – no milk, no honey, no anything else. (ok, maybe a tiny slice of lemon)

i LOVE blending teas.
