Upon first sniff it’s true “chocolate covered strawberries” as described. During/After Steeping the “chocolate” scent is subtracted quite a bit. Strawberry scent is more prominent. But when you taste it with the taste and smell combined it’s like a “smoked” chocolate with a hint of strawberry. I really like it, tho. A good blend. Closer to a black tea than a flavored blast which I like. Worth a try, indeed!
