Dry leaves smell of indeterminate spice/sweetness, Big chunks of dried fruit and some flowers visible in the blend.

Brews red-orange, smells like apples and cream, with a hint of what I would call “pumpkin pie spice.”

It is very sweet, no need to add sugar! Also it has a definite creamy taste to me. Can’t tell why, but I like it. However there is a slightly astringent/bitter finish that seems a bit tannic (drys the mouth). What’s up with that? Maybe it’s the melon, which I’m tasting as it cools.

I’m not quite sure what to make of all this. Maybe it’s not a first thing in the morning tea, because my taste buds are confused. This tea went from feeling creamy to feeling thin in about 5 min. And it’s sweet and fruity yet dries out my mouth… I can’t rate it right now. Will try on another day.
