Smells nice. Just barely feel that pure jasmine scent that i dislike.

Color is becoming dark red. Maybe even most red tea I’ve had so far. Which is slightly surprising for a vanilla/jasmine tea.

Taste is quite fruity, can feel hibiscus, ginger, cardamom a bit. Idk about vanilla and jasmine – its just too much strong scents in it to recognize them all. Slightly acid. Has some exotic taste in it, ginger and cardamom give it a nice kick but it’s still just bit above average fruit herbal tea.
Gotta try with a teaspoon of honey. Might make it better.
Yes it is somewhat better. Not great…

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
