Aroma is dominated by smoke, but not as strong as in pure Lapsang Sapchong. Plus some wood, tanned leather and ash notes.
Slight sweetness, slight astringency, smoke/leather/ash leather combination in taste.
I like this tea. It’s not hardcore enough to doscourage casual tea drinkers and it is still expressive enough to appeal to the dedicated smoked tea lovers.
