I love this teas smoky flavor, by far the best tea I’ve tried. (3 mins @ 212°C)
When I need to be AWAKE, this is the tea I reach for. It's smoky and leathery and somehow makes that taste good. The caffeine is not kidding around though!
Emma Thomas
Wonderful! A cozy brew - not too sweet and not too earthy. (3 mins @ 212°C)
Heather Mcleod
This is definitely a unique tea. It completely reminds me of Lestrade. It has a smoky mysterious flavor. Do not judge it by its smell or the first sip. Like Lestrade, it takes a minute to understand it.
Billie Holligay
Nice -- a little musty, a little sweet, with a pleasant balance between creaminess and astringency. Best drunk without milk or sweetener, when you're in a bit of a grump and you want to really enjoy it. (5 mins @ 206°C)
