This tea had always interested me whenever I saw it at the store and I finally got to try it. The dry leaf is very pretty: little bright petals in a bed of pretty rooibos. The scent was rooibos with a TON of apricots. I didn’t smell a bunch of caramel or honey, but pure apricot fruits. Steeped, the tea smelled equally as fruity. It even retained the juicy character of the apricots. Each sip had a nice balance of apricot and rooibos, and the slightest bit of honey flavor. As much as I wanted to love this tea, I just couldn’t. Something about it didn’t taste RIGHT to me. Maybe I had imagined this tea to be something beyond delicious – I think I wanted apricots dipped in honey & caramel. It’s not a terrible tea, just not as good as I wanted it to be.
