Got this for Christmas since apparently I’m always eyeing my Mom’s container of it. (Which I totally don’t remember actually doing, but hey, free tea. Lol!) Mine came in one of the company’s metal containers, though I’m unimpressed with it and may just switch the container with something else since the top is clear plastic and the lid comes off super easily not to mention I smell the tea clear through it. It certainly isn’t worth the extra $2.50 the company charges for it (their ‘refill bag’ is only $9). I would have much rather have gotten a DavidsTea Tin for that, but hey, Xmas gift and I’m not about to tell my Mom that. It was super thoughtful of her to get this for me. But I digress. XD
Very fruity smelling in the container. Primarily black tea with a smattering of green leaves mixed in. Lots of little chunks of papaya, rose hips (?) and larger chunks of apple.
Brewed this still smells fruity though the taste unsweetened is definitely not on the same par as the smell. Adding some Truvia and it definitely becomes much fruitier. Reminds me of Bouddha Blue from Mariage Frères….Or maybe it was ESP emporium’s Fruit Bowl…..No, Bouddha Blue. I’ll have to make those two for comparison.
But this one is definitely tasty. I might try it cold brewed when summer rolls around, but for me this one isn’t bad hot.
