Got this for Christmas since apparently I’m always eyeing my Mom’s container of it. (Which I totally don’t remember actually doing, but hey, free tea. Lol!) Mine came in one of the company’s metal containers, though I’m unimpressed with it and may just switch the container with something else since the top is clear plastic and the lid comes off super easily not to mention I smell the tea clear through it. It certainly isn’t worth the extra $2.50 the company charges for it (their ‘refill bag’ is only $9). I would have much rather have gotten a DavidsTea Tin for that, but hey, Xmas gift and I’m not about to tell my Mom that. It was super thoughtful of her to get this for me. But I digress. XD

Very fruity smelling in the container. Primarily black tea with a smattering of green leaves mixed in. Lots of little chunks of papaya, rose hips (?) and larger chunks of apple.
Brewed this still smells fruity though the taste unsweetened is definitely not on the same par as the smell. Adding some Truvia and it definitely becomes much fruitier. Reminds me of Bouddha Blue from Mariage Frères….Or maybe it was ESP emporium’s Fruit Bowl…..No, Bouddha Blue. I’ll have to make those two for comparison.
But this one is definitely tasty. I might try it cold brewed when summer rolls around, but for me this one isn’t bad hot.

Spice-flavored tea that is a bit smoother in flavor due, perhaps, to the light vanilla touch and almonds. Very good with milk and a bit of sugar. A good “holiday” tea!

Juicy, fruity aroma with a clean, very fresh fruit taste. Easily stood up to 2nd and 3rd infusions. This will be great iced this summer!

A very flavorful, creamy black tea blend with soft notes of vanilla and—-caramel. The best way to describe it—a quiet cup but one I will look forward to again and again.

A truly decadent tea experience—dark chocolate peppermint patty aroma followed by sweet, creamy, chocolate mint flavors with a backnote of coconut. Mint does not overpower but enhances the choco-coconut, and the chocolate aroma continues to develop as tea cools. 2nd infusion: Still smooth with chocolate notes with muted mint sneaking through once in a while. 3rd infusion: Surprisingly, a lovely, flavorful cup of tea.

Dry leaves smell of papaya. Liquor is very smooth, almost syrupy; tastes of sweet fruit. Fruit flavor explodes as tea cools. 2nd infusion yields an even stronger fruit flavor. It is not a repeat choice prepared hot, but a definite selection for iced tea this summer.
