I agree with what some others have said — I wish it had a little more taste. But the dry aroma is incredible!

Much better on a second steeping of about 4 minutes. Great blend!
Great for when I want that fruity fix! I steeped it for an herbal, though, which was too long for the amount of ceylon black apricot in this blend. Will go shorter next time.
A very nice, but standard, Earl Grey.
I like a nice sour fruit tisane, so I think this is pretty good. It is curious that there is no identification of the green leaf that appears in the blend, but it doesn’t seem to do much to the flavor.
I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this tea! Gotta remember that it’s not as heavy as a normal oolong.
If you like cherries, the aroma is amazing, both dry and wet. It has a nice, tart cherry flavor, and isn’t too sweet at all. Just the way I like my fruit tisanes.
Very nice. Mellow, as a green tea should be, but with a hint of smokiness. More full-bodied than most greens.
This tea has a delicate body with aromas of springtime, and a palate of—oh, who am I kidding? I just wanted to post another tasting note so that I could say “scott_ish is drinking Love Child” on Twitter, again.
Still one of my favorites!
As delightful as ever.
Kicking this rating up a little bit. Just a really pleasant tea, if the flavored thing is your thing. It’s flavored, but it’s all subtle. I think it’s probably the chamomile’s influence keeping the fruit and vanilla in check.
This hit me just right today. The natural sweetness, the hint of tannin… just right!
Giving this ever so slightly a bump. Very pleasant on first steep, somehow got bitter on the second, with the same steeping parameters. Interesting…

This is a delicious tea. It’s got great acidity without being over-the-top with it. Very refreshing in that regard. The orange notes are very present, but not overwhelming like so many fruit teas that smell like scented candles. The tea mellows with multiple steepings.
Very, very nice. Would drink every day and twice on Sunday.
Much better on second, shorter steeping. Not as much bitterness in the finish. Will continue to experiment. Provisional, semi-positive rating granted.
I’m not sold on this yet, but from reading some of the tasting notes, it appears that it may take a lot of experimentation with the time/temp/amount of leaf.
On the advice of the tasting notes, I used 2 tsp of leaf and steeped for 2 min at 160°. This produced a brew that, while initially lightly sweet, quickly turns fairly bitter and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.
Rating pending. Going to try a second, much shorter steeping now.
Very tasty. Tannic without being bitter. Fruity without being sweet. Medium-bodied, but light enough to drink in the afternoon when I so often reach for a green.
Smooth and mellow, as the description says. A not-unpleasant hint of corn on the palate. Some very mild tannins. Pretty good, but unremarkable.
I always love this when I don’t oversteep it.
I don’t really notice any crab…
Anyway, I think this is a very well-balanced tea. A hint of sweetness, a few vegetal notes, a medium body… just right!
