The aroma is like a citrusy solvent or cleaning solution. Intense and almost overwhelming. The taste is much smoother, like a very mellow earl grey. Rooibos and bergamot flavors are bright and fresh. Very little black tea flavor and only a hint of the lychee. No noticeable astringency. Medium copper in the cup.

Edit: I need to lower my rating as I’m having trouble finishing this. The aroma is really overwhelming for me. While the taste is pleasant, I just can’t get past the aroma. I think I’ve figured it out: Bergamot + Rooibos + Lapsang = Pinesol (for me anyway).
