When I first opened this bag of tea, I was immediately hit with a strong berry smell. It was such a strong berry smell that one of my friends asked if it was even tea.
I have been trying to sample different berry teas. I really enjoy berries, but out of all the berry teas I have sampled in the past, none have really blown me away.
I thought this tea had a very strong berry flavor. However, right after I poured the water into the teapot at work, I started talking to a co-worker and definitely steeped way too long. The tea ended up tasting a little bitter. I am not sure if this tea is generally on the more bitter side or if it was because I steeped it too long and the water was too hot, so I am going to hold off on rating it until I make it again.
