I really appreciate this tea, I use this when things are a bit crazy at work and I need to pick it back up even though I am wearing down.
When I open the can I get the great smokey flavor which reminds me of calm days spent in front of my barrel smoker waiting to enjoy brisket, chicken, and other delicious foods.
For the five minutes its in the infuser I watch the color develop and bask in the aroma put out.
After it fills my mug and I take that first bracing drink I am mentally rejuvenated and ready to rock.
Be warned - this is a very smoky tea, good for those that enjoy a Russian Caravan blend. It is a bit smokier than others I've tried, but I enjoy the taste.
I was surprised by how balanced this tea was. I just moved from Europe, and I used to buy lapsang souchong from Sweden or France. This is the first time when the briskness is just right for my palate. It's been my favorite tea for the last 6 years, and it always takes me back to camping in the mountains in the summer.
I would recommended it particularly to those who love smoked cheese, or meat.
