I liked this more the first time I wrote about it, perhaps because I was focusing on it and hadn’t brought it to work.
It isn’t a great work companion for me. The smokiness is a bit too ashy for me, and that made me think about the tea too much which isn’t really what I want to be doing while I’m at work.
Bumping it down. I should try one of my other gunpowders just to make sure. It may be that I don’t love gunpowder that much any more. Or it may be that, like some lapsangs, the ash is too dominate when what I really want is smoke.
