The smokey flavour permeates from the dry leaves and the tea itself also has a very strong almost smoked ham-like scent.
The taste of the smoke is a bit too overpowering for me. You can taste a bit of the sweetness and maltness of the Assam in the back. The tea isn’t by any means bad, it just isn’t my cup of tea (pun intended).
Flavors: Malt, Smoked
