Organic Black Tea

Organic

If you liked smoked food, the smell of a pipe, then you'll probably appreciate a tea that has its leaves withered over pine or cypress, and then goes through a 2nd phase of drying by hanging over smoking pine fire. The aroma is intense, but the tea is pleasantly mild.

Amazing smoky tea!!

The main thing you need to know about this tea is that their description ("an intense pine-smoke flavor") is not an understatement. When they say "intense," they mean it. So if you like smoky black teas, you'll love this. It has a delicious tobacco-like aroma that hits you right out of the bag and fills the room as it's brewing. It also handles milk really well (not sure about sugar since I never use any in my tea). I like flavors like this (think peaty Scotch whisky or mezcal), so this tea is absolutely wonderful. I'll be ordering a full-size bag soon!

It IS acquired

When I first opened this bag and smelled the smoky flavor, I was not sure I was gonna like this tea. I tried it, and I thought it was ok. I tried it a few more times and liked it more each time. Once you get used to the pine taste mixed with your black tea, this is actually a very delightful choice!
