This was day 7 of the Theodor advent, but I wasn’t feeling well and the thought of a smoky tea was nauseating. I’m glad I held off because this is a really nice cup that I’d hate to have a bad association with. This has a super strong smokey scent and flavor, but it is balanced so well which isn’t something I’ve found in other laps. The sip is perfect and the finish is the same. It has a depth to it that I can’t quite put into proper words. Smokey, leathery, slight bit of tobacco. I now regret not getting some of this while in Paris or in my order when I returned home. It will have to be on my next order for sure.
