*shrug* I have had Lapsang Souchong (pine smoked tea) before. Definitely an acquired taste imo. You could try the smoked hops. Thing is, what I have found with smoke flavor is that it doesn't matter all that much what ingredient is the vehicle for it. In the end the smokiness is pretty much it's own component. I smoke Chilis when I harvest at the end of the summer, when I add them to something I get the smokiness but there is little way of telling in the end where it came from.
