I got a sample in a swap of this from The DJBooth so I’m testing it out and writing it up! Brewed, it smells very much like a sweet cranberry but you can almost feel the aroma of the bitterness in the berry too. I think that extra sweetness comes from the pear and apple pieces. My first sip…delightful! I was expecting more of a bitter black tea taste for some reason and my palate is filled with an almost creamy crisp fruitiness. I taste more of the pear and feel the aroma of the cranberry. There is no unwanted bitterness to this tea!
I am not a huge fruit tea drinker, but this may have made me more open minded, it tastes so festive and crisp. This is also my very first sip of any Davids Tea. I think once it cools down, as with most teas, the flavors will be even more apparent. But even freshly hot, I’m really appreciating the feel and flavors in this tea!
