I bought this purely because it sounded different. I must say I was nervous about this, BUT, I am enjoying it as I type. WHen you open the tea bag envelop it smells like a fruity wine, almost. When and after steeping it smells more like a more gentle juice of sorts. It’s the darkest white tea color I have seen yet. The taste of fruit is a nice touch and thankfully not overbearing. I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
