The aroma of the unsteeped leaves is very orange. There is a hint of chocolate along with the nut blend (macadamia and almond fragrances), but it is the citrus note that leaves the lasting fragrance.

The aroma is the same for the brewed tea. I tried this hot with no sugar or milk first. It was good, but perhaps a little too overpowering with the citrus. Adding sugar to the hot brew allows for the chocolate and nut undertones to shine through. This makes it taste a little like coffee, but it is not well blended and the flavors come in waves. Finally, adding milk (and sugar) to the hot brew makes for a well blended coffee flavored tea with all components working synergistically. This was pleasant because tiramisu should taste like coffee.

Overall decent, but you would have to like tiramisu in order for it to be really worth it to try.

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
