A few cups later and a slightly chillier temperature, and I have decided I love this tea. It is reminiscent of berries, but there is so much more of a base to it! It is a great winter berry inspired tea!
It does not have a particularly strong aroma, so I am very surprised by how incredibly sweet and fruity it is! I can definitely taste the pineapple and papaya, and the fact that they are candied, add an incredibly sweetness to the tea that is just the perfect amount. This fruitiness is not tangy at all, and it is softened by the cinnamon and a very subtle note of star anise.
Overall, it’s really great, not what I expected it to be at all. There’s a lot going on in this tea, and you could never tell by just it’s aroma!
