The tea smells like strawberry or raspberry leaves. And it tastes rather berry-y and leafy, too. There is a hint of berry + leafy flavor and a hint of tart, then a clean tingly mint finish. About half way into my cup, I added a little sugar and half & half and that seemed to bring out the mint and push the berry to the back a bit. All in all, I think it’s probably a pretty interesting tea but it just combines all of my not-favorite flavors (raspberry-ish-ness, raw-ish leaf, mint) into one tea so I just don’t enjoy it. I can easily see others with different tastes liking it though.
