My first impressions: a bright orange color with a fruity and oddly nostalgic scent. I couldn’t stop sticking my nose in the bag. The smell was just that good. Well, fortunately it looked and smelled just as great as it tasted. Slightly bitter, full bodied, and with a fruity, honey-like sweetness. I feel like I’m not appreciating this tea enough by almost chugging it! Mmmmm!! Next time I’m going to cut back on the steeping time to see if I can slash some of that bitterness, though.
