I smell more honey and vanilla than I taste it, and that’s saying a lot because I actually used a spoonful of local raw honey! I have a very mild but slightly sweet brew. I don’t know if it is still a sour tongue/taste bud issue or not. The tea is not unpleasant, and the smell of it is utterly fantastic. I’m going to hold off on rating til a later date though, as I’m unsure whether I’d be giving it a fair rating at this time.
