My second sipping of this. The first time I could not taste much. This time i did 2 tsp in a pot and let it steep longer. Definitely taste it now.
To me it’s not that good of a taste but I can see how it can appeal to some. WIth my recommendation, I put no, but it could be yes for a certain crowd. To me it reminds me of alcohol and tobacco. Those two aren’t bad in themselves with tea or other flavors, but this isn’t my favorite from Harney by far. I wouldn’t order again but it’s drinkable.
With my remaining I may mix it with other teas and experiment. I have a full tin left.
I still don’t taste any smoke or lapsang. It is strong - but I do not enjoy Harney’s Lapsang much, this isn’t what I’d call a smokey tea.
