This is nicely decorated! Its dry leaf appearance reminds me of the Revontuli (Northern Lights) tea by Forsman, but the NK one smells more complex. It has bits of dried orange peel, cornflower, rose petals, safflower and a bright red flower. There is an intense, sweet floral scent with base notes of blueberry and something else, perhaps currants or strawberries.

It brews to a pretty medium amber color. It tastes “juicy” with a slight hint of bergamot. Easy to drink and good with milk. This would most likely make an excellent iced tea as well. The strongest flavors that come through are those of the orange peel and black tea. This isn’t one of my favorite black tea blends but it’s quite drinkable and I’m sure I’ll finish up what I have very soon!

Edit: I tried a second steep and it came out great. There was a minty lightness to the finish that wasn’t there before.
