Stacy was so generous to include this in my little sample bundle. Thank you kindly, Stacy!

The scent of the dry leaf really took me by surprise. It reminded me of autumn, so I tried to break it down further. Cocoa-dusted dried fruits? Then I looked at the description and noticed that apricots are listed under the flavour profile. Bingo. Cocoa-dusted dried apricots.

First infusion was strong on the cocoa and honey, and a little subtle with the fruity notes. I don’t detect any of the macadamia, but perhaps because it’s seamlessly blending in with the roasted motif.

Second infusion focused more on the fruit and honey aspects, while the cocoa note died down a bit. Still smooth and slightly roasty.

This is a stunning tea (starting to sound like Gordon Ramsay), and am truly enticed by this beauty. It’s definitely going on the shopping list.
