The smell of apricots wafts from the tea lazily like fragrant blossoms on a summer afternoon. It is gently flavored and quite nice. The underlying tea is a good quality tea with no bitterness. It is decaf, but flavorful. Underneath the apricot scent the tea has a slight floweriness, like a Darjeeling. Good for before bed. The sweetness of the tea would be enhanced by adding a small pastry.
