My first thought when I opened this bag of tea was just one word: Barbecue!! It seriously smells like southern BBQ ribs. I think I was expecting more of a woody sweet smell rather than a smoked meat smell, so it was surprising and powerful. Maybe a little too powerful. I don’t think I really enjoyed drinking this tea. The smokiness was just overwhelming. I enjoyed the aftertaste which was muchmore subtle- woodsy and a little sweet, but I don’t think I’ll have this tea again. The taste is a bit too powerful for me.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
