This is an interesting tea, for this is the only ounce of this tea. I picked this up without any knowledge of it, and I decided to be a little adventurous. I messaged the owner for help with brewing and gave it a shot. The dry leaves are a black assortment of leaves, and they give off the perfect scent. This tea is meant for winter. The intense aroma of campfire,barbecue, clove, char, and some slight fruit waft from these leaves. I placed a bunch in my teapot and brewed away. The steeped leaves become much more smoky and carry a slightly sweet aroma. The taste is warming and cozy. The flavor begins with a nice smoke and takes a hold of the taste buds. The brew then moves into some caramel and a burnt sugar sweetness. This brew ends with a spicy lingering the background. You can notice a minor chocolate tone that lifts from the leaves after brewing. The second steep leads to a smoked oak wood flavor. The brew kinda falls off after two steeps. I would use this as an on the go camping tea. The leaves are incredibly durable, for you can leave these in the pot for a long time without any bitterness. I’m excited to take this on my hikes to warm me up on cold nights. This tea is my new go to during the frosty mornings. Also, this tea just looks like Christmas; rather, a more wild woodsman Christmas. I’m glad I discovered this hidden gem, and I’m unsure why so little has been created. Personally, I see this as another win among many from this company. However, this is not their best offering; although, it still qualifies as a quick one steep treat.
