This tea smells like apple juice. Dry, the tea has quite a bit of dry apple and gun powder green tea. The first steep tastes of fresh apple juice with the tea base not extremely present except to provide a feeling of alertness and provide some sweetness. The second steep is the best, the tea base becomes creamy, providing a sweet, vegetal flavour, almost like fresh greenbeans, overlayed with apple. A very refreshing, unpretentious tea, that delivers what it promises.
