Thanks to Della Terra Teas for this sample! I won it in one of their plentiful Facebook giveaways.
The tea is great. The dry leaf smells really strongly, and that’s good. There are little silver candies and silver flakes in it, which I’ve never seen before, but it actually makes the tea sparkle in the light! I still have enough for one more mug, after this pot plus the bit I parcelled off into a swap, so I’m definitely going to go glass with it.
I taste what is definitely apricot. Which is great, considering some of the lackluster apricot teas I’ve had in the past. I think it’s hard to get right. The flavor is a little bit light, but that’s probably because I went light on the leaves. There’s no astringency or bitterness anywhere. Really, really smooth tea, really good flavor. A winner!
