There are a number of our teas that began as an idea that we initially thought might be a little crazy. It has become our practice to try them anyway, just to see whether it is a good crazy or a bad crazy. (Except for the weird idea I had when feverish once to make a blend involving tomatos.)
‘The Smoking Gun’ falls into that category. We’d come to the realization that we didn’t use some of our foundational teas in enough different blends to truly warrant the space they took up in our ingredients storage. Rather than downcheck the blends that did use them, we decided to start brainstorming about new teas. ‘The Smoking Gun’ leapt to mind, full concept – “Well, this would be an awesomely amusing name, but not sure whether the blend would work.”
We blended a test, and both of us loved the smoke with the green.
