The aroma of fruit (apricot!) and a hint of spice greeted me when I opened the package. I don’t know that there is actually any spices in this blend, but, my nose detected a faint note of spice.
This is a very nice combination of apricot and passion fruit. Pleasantly sweet, only faintly tart (which is quite alright with me). I’m not getting any significant amount of spice flavor so I will attribute the spice note that I’m getting to be part of the black tea base. There is some astringency – not a heavily drying astringency, but it does seem to cleanse the palate because there is very little aftertaste.
