Smells pleasant, not overbearing. I can smell the orange and the spearmint and the spice! It’s very light in color. Upon tasting the spice flavor is more prominent then you can taste the other flavors. I have to say I don’t like this one. I thought I would based on smell. But I don’t, I don’t think the Orange, Spearmint, and Spice blend well at all in this tea. Maybe my sink drain will like this one better.
