Fruit explosion is what I thought when I first smelt this tea in the store. I was so smitten that I bought much more than I anticipated (think cash register shock), but it smells so good. I store it in an airtight can from an old white tea, and when I do open the container my nose is in heaven. The pineapple + mango aromas are STRONG in the dry tea.
Once I pour in water though, the aromas are muted down, and as its brewing, I can smell more of the berries in the blend. Ripe berries come to mind.
The liquid packs a strong fruit punch to the nose, less so to the tongue. Its more of a candied / overripe fruit note rather than fresh fruit note.
It brews as a dark pink liquid, so not everyone’s cup of tea (ha!), some may prefer to ‘hide’ this in a ceramic mug instead.
Flavors: Black Currant, Mango, Orange Zest, Pineapple, Raspberry
