Pretty robust for an herbal tea. It smells of cinnamon and fruity berries/hibiscus with a hint of popcorn. The color is a bright fuschia, which made me laugh when I saw it. The taste is mostly hibiscus, but it is balanced by the other flavors (other fruits and spice). You can’t pick out the papaya or fruits lower down on the list, but it’s nice to see pieces of them in the loose leaf tea. A basic fruity holiday tea, but not one I will be sad to see gone when the season passes.
