Crisp autumn nights call for warmth and comfort and little can better provide them than an autumn Bonfire. Behold our Bonfire blend: Honeybush hazelnut and cocoa nibs relax and ground you, while a spice blend of aniseed, cinnamon, clove and orange peel offer cozy comfort and zest. Apples and rose hips add soft sweetness while lapsang and red peppercorn offer hints of smoke and the flickering spark of heat. A perfect tea for fireside enjoyment or downtime dreaming. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      The aroma is amazing! Combine that with the taste and it's literally like I'm sitting in front of the fireplace. It's a little sweet, a little spice, a little smoke, and it just all combines in this really nice cup of tea. If you're looking for something warm and homey, this is it. Bonus for being "trace amounts" of caffeine.

      Absolutely disgusting. The smokiness of the lapsang goes horribly with the spices and overpowering creme brûlée flavor

      When you open this tea, you smell a bonfire in a bag. I wasn't sure I was going to like it for this reason. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. I really really like it. I like it as is, but you could add a little honey if you want a sweet taste to it. Such a great tea. The other thing I like about it is it is low in caffeine so I can have a cup in the evening without really disturbing my sleep.

      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.
