Rich and aromatic. The small black leaves let up a very faint scent of smoke and greens, typical of the type, but less pronounced than others I’ve tried.

A beautiful liquor the color of weak cola filled the cup, and to my surprise, scented the air around me with a wonderful smokey floral aroma. The first taste to reveal itself was that of light smoke; not Lapsang strong, but present and tempered with a wonderful maltiness in good balance. The finish was floral and vegetal, with a final buttery flavor, perhaps what others call creaminess.

I’m whittling down the number of teas which I’ll reorder and stock in quantity; this one makes that list!
