I was not at all fond of this tea. it is terribly bitter and has a weird licorice note to it with an over-current of woodchips and dirt. I love the way it smells, and I enjoyed the smoothness of it in my mouth, but the flavour is like someone slamming their hands on a piano which is odd, because its just a simple tea blend its not a complicated herbal or anything. The aftertaste was like spraying a bit of cologne into your mouth.
I was brave and tried it once again with a bit of cream and I personally thought it tasted a little bit better this way, but not redemptive-ly so.

It smells amazing, but personally this tea is not one I would choose for myself!
