Default Tangiers Red Tea

I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on Tangiers Red Tea. I am placing an order tomorrow and will be trying my hand once more at Tangiers noir line. I have been searching around for reviews and frankly what I have turned up is pretty sad. It seems like on of those flavors people are reluctant to try but I am interested for exactly that reason.

Does anyone out there have an opinion on this blend?

Let me do my best to answer this:

Basically, if you want to smoke iced black tea, this is the flavor for you.
Its not too complex, its just straight tea with a hint of sweetness but not over powering. It lasts a good amount of time and is not that fickle on acclimation. Great on its own or as a mixer (I'm pretty sure this plus tasty peach is what goes into Peach Iced Tea). Hope this helps.

I am very guilty of this, but when I review something I only do the video part and not the written part too. I was looking for reviews for Red Tea but could not find much, I ended up getting some though that should get to my house tomorrow when I come back from this training on my way to the next one. I need to set time to look over all my reviews and write them out, which will be annoying lol.

Its not super "splenda" sweet. Its a more balanced floral (but tea floral) flavor.

That's about what I figured sadly...

I need to figure out another flavor to order with the horchata and maraschino cherry that is already decided upon.

Red Tea is a different flavor than black tea entirely. It has an almost sweet/spicy flavor.

Tangiers does an AMAZING job replicating this flavor. If I smoked Noir often I would have tons of this stuff.

If you have had actual red tea, then you know what it will taste like. The tobacco flavor is lighter than the actual tea, of course. The sweetness is just like in the real tea, very light. The flavor of Red tea is usually described as Earthy, Spicy, and Sweet in the tea world.


Also, a "sweetened black tea" flavor would be a sweet tea, which is definitely not red tea. A sweet tea flavor would be awesome though.

Umm being oriental and everything. Red tea is suppose to be the same thing as black tea. Black tea in english is translated to red tea in chinese lol. So whenever your at an asian restaurant and you ask for black tea it's actually red tea.

Red tea is African Rooibos. In America, that's what is commonly referred to as "red Tea", because the tea is a rust color. Cherno is right about Asian tea, but not about this Tangiers Flavor in general or what it's suppose to replicate.

I recommend choco mint or melon blend.

Red tea-vanilla with a splash of cream and sugar= awesome I've only had this as a tea blend but I would love to smoke this combo.

That's one of the few flavors I didn't care for. I would go with Melon Blend, K-Peach, Pear, Passionfruit or any of the mints.
