This smells AMAZING! The dry leaf smells very fruity and flowery and it is absolutely making my mouth water. The brewed tea maintains much of the fragrance that I noted in the dry leaf, but smells maybe even a teensy bit better because now I can drink it instead of just smell it. haha! Seriously, though, there is a bit more of an Oolong floral note to the brewed tea, however, it still smells fruity and delicious.
This tastes as good as it smells. To be honest, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. I don’t typically go crazy over Acai berry flavored things – I mean, I like them OK, but, I’d prefer just about any other berry over the acai. But it all works together well here.
It doesn’t taste strongly of BERRY … at least, not in this first infusion. It has a smooth Oolong flavor that is lightly floral, and this melds wonderfully with the berry notes, providing a taste that is sweet and a little tart, and quite tasty. It is really quite different from any other berry flavored Oolong that I can recall tasting… but I mean that in a good way. This is so unique. It is not your run-of-the-mill berry flavored Oolong. It’s really nice.
