I was very worried for how this tea would taste. In the bag and while steeping, it has a sickeningly sweet smell. I knew if it tasted like that, I wouldn’t be able to drink. Fortunately, it doesn’t taste like it smells. Unfortunately, it has a rather simple taste. This tea just seemed to have a general sweet taste to me. I would never get “toffee” from this on my own. It’s good enough if you just want something sweet, but you’ll be disappointed if you expect it to live up to the name.
