Bonfire is a tea that brings autumn to mind and truly is best enjoyed during the cooler months of the year. Being nearly caffeine free makes it the perfect beverage for a cozy evening after a long day (and in my opinion has a slightly sedative effect). My steep brought the honeybush and clove/peppercorn flavors to the forefront, creating a taste much like the scent of a fragrant but spicy candle shop. Those who find pure lapsang to be overpowering may find a more welcoming and subtle alternative here. This tea truly is an unusual blend of flavors that's worth experience (even if only as a sampler), especially from September - November.
I wish this was offered all year round! It's reminiscent of everything fall means. Anyone from outside a city limit can resonate with the warm smoky flavor of this tea.
This one is definitely an acquired taste. I love the idea of it and I can see how this could be a favorite for some but there was too much of the smoky flavoring for me. I tried it with almond milk and honey as well but still didn t love the taste.
