I wasn't terribly impressed with this one, but I'd drink it if it was around. Now that I am fancy enough to tell the difference between the two, I find that this was both bitter and astringent. I'll perhaps try this with a shorter steep time and see if that makes a difference.

he aroma of the dry leaves is a mix of pine resin, pepper, stewed cherries, and an aged oak cask. It smells like fruit, scotch, and smoke-less Lapsang Souchong. What an unusual tea!

This tea is brisk and strong! Breakfast blend is a perfect description because I am certainly awake now. The taste is a blend of molasses, pine resin, oak wood, and lastly honey. For all this tea's strength, it is not bitter or unpleasant, it is sweet and intense.
