This is another sampling sent to me by the generous Doulton! (thank you!!!)
The aroma of the dry leaf is like tropical fruit, and that fragrance softens considerably upon brewing – although the brewed liquor does smell quite good.
It has a pleasantly sweet flavor, and the fruit flavor reminds me quite a bit of a fruit smoothie. The black tea is very smooth and quite mellow and unassuming. A nice amount of astringency and no bitterness.
I like this tea best served iced! It is very refreshing.
