This is an interesting fruit flavoured black tea. It is not juicy or very sweet, but it has an interesting flavour and the fruit flavours are very natural and enjoyable.
The dry tea smells strongly, of ripe fresh apricot with a touch of ripe peach. The brewed base tea smells spicy with a touch of leather, smoke and licorice, overlain with a peachy fruit smell. The tea base is rugged tasting slightly of licorice, and slightly of that taste that burning fragrant hardwood leaves in your mouth. The tea does not taste overly smoky but in the first steep the base is dominant being overlain with the fruit which becomes more prominent in the aftertaste which is a mix of apricot and peach. The base tea is bitter in a dark coffee type of way but otherwise smooth. The tea becomes fruitier as it cools with apricot being dominant over peach. The 2nd steep has more fruit, with the tea base becoming spicier and less bitter.
Overall an interesting tea.
