Tea: Earl Grey Smoky

Description: Smoky black tea from China flavoured with bergamot.
Earl Grey is a great classic among teas, chosen by the Royal Family of British Monarchy for more than 200 years.
Appreciated for its refreshing and toning notes, it is one of the most drunk teas in the world.
Kusmi has made a smoky version that goes very well with a pastry.

Water: 12 ounces boiling water
Steep Time: a little over 2 minutes
Dry Leaf Smell: lapsang souchong (campfire smoke)
Steeped Tea Smell: sweet, lapsang souchong (campfire smoke), bake-y, citrus

I am not a huge smoke-y fan, but I do love how this combines earl grey into the smoked flavor.
I love the quality of packaging on Kusmi products.
