Thanks to Bonnie for a sample of this. The dry leaf has a very very pungent smell. Smelled like a strawberry perfume. I am usually not a fan of flavored black teas, but this was a little different. The taste to me has a berry like flavor. It surprised me.:)

I think that the context of how this has been used is part of what makes it different. The Russian Tea Room and other places where you would add other things to the tea…like the sour cherry jam. It becomes dessert. Did some reading on this after it was prepared for me this way a few years ago.

I saw a bag from this company in the Asian grocery of all places and my curiosity was peaked.
