Wonderful smoky aroma after opening the bag. I really love the smokiness in a tea, so sometimes I specifically choose my teas based on that quality. Here it comes from drying the leaves over the burning wood.
After steeping it is still very smoky. Not as much as in Lapsang Souchong, but still strong. And it has a distinct woody character plus some fruity, jam-like sweet note in the background.
Smoky and sweetish taste, rich with woody accents. Astringency and tartness almost not present after steeping for 3 minutes.
Very good tea.
