This smells a little herbally but it seems to have a SMIDGE of berry aroma hiding somewhere, too. The spices are very subtle…very light. Once infused I can smell the lemongrass and the spice is just underneath the lemon-aroma. The taste is very different…there is a cinnamon powder type taste paired with the lemongrass on the tongue and that’s on top of the stereotypical green bean or fresh pea type taste I have been associating with Guayusa. Not bad. Very different from what I expected…but not bad at all!
