I loved this blend. Purely fruit pieces. You have to steep it strong to really get the full flavours, but it was just so light and simple. Naturally sweet (being that the ingredients are basically all candied fruit pieces). I loved it hot or iced. I can certainly see where people would get the “bubblegum” essence from, but not in an over-bearing way. I often made it in the morning and tossed the steeped pieces in to my oatmeal (afterall, it was just fruit). A unique and fun blend.
