I was a little worried when I opened the bag and the floral scent nearly knocked me over. During and after steeping, there was delicious aroma that reminded me off red Starburst candy. Fortunately, the actual tea does not taste overly floral or overly candied so don’t let your nose fool you. This blend is earthy and reminds me of actual fresh fruit rather than something artificial. It has a warm, floral aftertaste that I found pleasant, but it won’t be for everyone.
