Second try. I am over my initial disappointment with how my Numi tea order arrived so I do note sweet berry fragrance from the dry tea bag. I still cut open the paper bag and steep in my Breville tea basket even though some tiny leaves fall through. I did expect a better leaf grade since the website states Flowery Orange Pekoe. I assumed that meant a larger leaf size. I am keeping an open mind though. Especially since I have 97 bags to go.
I taste hibiscus only as if there was no tea. I don’t understand why I didn’t taste it before. Last brew and this, no berry flavour that was detected in the scent. Hmmm, I will figure out how to enjoy this but warning to people, you have to work to like it. Any one who wants to give Numi a fair go with a sample, I have copious amounts of eleven of their teas. I am not known to exercise caution. The web site description was so tantalizing!
