Produced by: PMD Tea

Price: £5.50 for 50g

This was a curiosity tea that I was wanting to try – a smoky Ceylon. Now i’m no fan of Lapsang Souchong (it’s too intense) and I don’t mind Russian Caravan but this just get’s it right.


The dried tea is smoked over cinnamon bark which gives it a lovely smoky taste but this aftertaste lingers in your mouth even after you have drank the liquor. Whereas some smoked teas feel like you have swallowed an ashtray, this is just really tasty and at no point does the smokiness become too much or ruin the drinking experience. When brewing it looks like a pint of guiness, it really does go that dark in colour but this is just a nice balance of taste and flavour. Well done PMD!
