Wow I did not expect to love this tea so much! I believe it is the only black tea here I had not yet tried, so upon my last order of a large bag of Cocteau, I added a couple of 15 cup bags of smoky teas. I expected the smoke to be pretty much like the smoke in Black Lodge, but it isn’t at all like that! It’s more of that lovely pipe tobacco smokiness, rather than campfire as with BL. A different flavor profile completely! And boy does it deliver! The same thing I love about Silencio (pipe tobacco note) is what I love about Outlaw! The sweet dark cherry compliments this perfectly. And the blend of black teas prevents any overly-tannic flavor. Give it a try! I’m gonna need to set up a whole tea station with stackable sealed containers of all my August Uncommon teas!
