All at once exotic and mysterious and perhaps a little bit insane, with a lingering hint of smoke.

I think this is the tea that convinced me that I really do like lapsang souchong. Smoky to the point of almost being savory. I like it with half&half (but that's how I take the majority of my tea.) Probably not for you if you don't like lapsang souchong because it's definitely the driving flavor. (3 mins @ 212°C)
I was surprised by the smell. Like others say, it really does smell like smoke. It fits the character incredibly well! I was worried the flavor would make me feel sickly, but definitely not. Incredibly well done. Absolutely captured the Sherlock-feeling.

One of my favorite teas. Holds up well to my trash panda ways of never timing my steep and occasional resteeping.
This tea has a really unique smell! I definitely smell smoke when I open the bag, and there seems to be undertones that I can't really describe. The taste is pretty surprising though. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it, but the taste itself is much calmer than it smells. I would definitely get this again.

I am definitely an oversteeper, so I probably should've timed this better. Never had lapsang souchong before and the smokiness was an acquired taste that I grew to enjoy! (5 mins @ 212°C)
