The smell of these dry leaves is truly amazing. I make almost everyone who comes into my apartment smell them. It carries through to the brewed tea, which I can smell the moment I start pouring it out of my teapot!
I definitely get peach and apricot right away with this tea. I think I taste the nutty/cocoa taste the description mentions as it cools down, but I’m not sure. Mostly it’s just the fruit, which is lovely, but not as complex as I expected. I think I’m going to blame my water, though, because even run through a Brita filter it has a strong taste that tends to mess with my tea.
