Very fragrant dry leaves which open to reveal mellow notes of fruit in the rich amber-honey cup which has shades of green nearing cups edge. Apricot and honey clearly dominate the pallet of this medium bodied tea… very soft with lingering raspberry-like acidity which balances out the sweetness and finishes crisp. Not an exceptional experience overall – perhaps because its a bit one-note with the honey-fruit thing dominating. However, it is a very pleasant cup with multiple steepings possible and the overall mental effects are quite calming with almost no caffeine jolt at all. This would be a perfect evening tea that shouldn’t keep you up all night.
