New favorite tea!

I love black teas that pack a punch and have a more unique flavor than standard black tea- Bad News might be filling that role! I also had to do a double take and realized once I had it that it was part of the Critical Role collection, and found it very fitting that it was Percy's tea- it's perfect :)

Smokey, rich, warming

If you don't like a good Lapsang Souchong you won't like this - if you do, oh boy. You're in for a treat. The smokiness is a perfect choice for Percy, but the faint (very faint, rose petals do not compete well with smokey flavours) reminds you that under that vengeance is a snobby rich posh boy. This feels like the kind of tea Percy put up with on the road, trying to make something that resembled what he grew up with but not quite managing it. It's delicious, and I heartily recommend it.

(Also, total side note - getting this was a faff thanks to international mail, but Friday Teas were so so helpful in getting it back on track - correcting the address and letting me know where my parcel had vanished off to. Superb customer service, I cannot fault you guys one iota, thank you so much for all your help AND your excellent tea!)

Bad News is Good News

Good morning tea. Smokey flavor dominates, rose petals don't overwhelm with floral notes. Chicory gives a very subtle depth. Very good for the first infusion, does not hold up well to a second infusion. Smokey character remains, but flavor pales greatly compared to first brew.
