It’s odd. There’s a surprising sourness that comes along with the floral and fruity notes. It is almost as if I steeped the tea in juice that had not been sweetened at all. The taste is alright, but I cannot get beyond the sourness. It is not overwhelming, but so very out of place with what I expected.
