The leaves smell oddly like… cream soda? Well, that’s different.
Strangely enough, I think this tea tastes similar to last years Geisha Plum or Whisky White (even though they really have NO ingredients in common, and without the dreaded bitterness). Initially, I didn’t get my hopes up that this tea would blow me away, but it’s doing just that! It’s light and naturally sweet, no need to add agave, honey or sugar. The black tea didn’t go bitter, and the fruitiness isn’t overwhelming either. It’s just perfectly sweet, light, fruity goodness in a cup.
