I am the first to review this tea. Whoa.

But anyway, the dry leaves of this smell like yummy, yummy noms. Fresh fruit salad, to be more specific.

Brewed, the scent of caramel comes across a bit more, but still mainly fruity.

I have to say that the description led me to believe this would be along the lines of Kusmi’s St Petersburg, which is also fruits and caramel (though that has bergamot and this does not). But this really doesn’t smell anything like that. This smells more like caramel apple. Hoooomg. The yumminess of a caramel apple!

My conclusion upon tasting it is that more people should be drinking this tea. For serious. It is delectable and fruity and sweet, but not caramel-appley as the scent would imply. The tea in this isn’t too obvious, but it isn’t completely lost, either. It definitely blends well with the flavors, and everything is in a wonderful, delicious balance. It isn’t too fruity, and it isn’t too caramely, it’s just fresh and yummy with a slight sweetness, and it feels right to be enjoying this on a glorious spring day like today. This would probably be good iced, too!

I may be the first Steepsterite to say, “This is yummy; you should buy it!” But hopefully I won’t be the last!

This is the last of the 6 teas I ordered, and I’m so happy with all of them that I wish there were more! But I still have two samples left to taste. Mwahaha! >:D

Bio

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
