This tea brews up to a rich ochre tinged orange. There is a sent of an orange-lemon citrus , and muscatel over a deeper slightly malty base and something that reminds of that slightly jammy fruity plastic scent they used to scent strawberry shortcake dolls once upon a time. Overall it smells very fruity and slightly spicy. It has a nice medium body with a moderate amount of astringency. The flavour is dominated by its fruity spicy top notes. The fruity notes lie more towards a more spicy grapey note with a hint of spice, lemon rind and lemon.
Underneath the flavour is quite sweet, with a hint of floral, which overlies a malty astringent note. Quite a nice after noon tea.

Thanks JustJames for the chance to try this tea!

Haven’t had this in ages…one of the first H&S I ever tried and it still makes me smile thinking about it.
