    Delicious blend

    The flavour of this blend is quite strong and earthy, which I love, although for my taste there is just a whisker too much smokiness from the Lapsang Souchong coming through, so overall it tastes quite similar to standalone Lapsang Souchong tea. Still, it's really delicious, so will definitely have this again.

    My Favourite

    If you love a really smoky tea, this is the one for you. It's almost as smoky as Octomore whisky and feels like you're drinking a bonfire. Love it!
