Another surprise sample from MissB: thank you! Dry this smells intensely of apricot or other stone fruit with some spicy herbal notes underneath. While it steeps there’s something…off about it. I’ve never had most of the things in here on their own, so I couldn’t say what it is, but the smell is off-putting.
Luckily the taste is more like the smell of the dry mix than the brewed tea. It’s a little fruity and a little herbal, and actually pretty robust for an herbal blend. I’ll have no trouble using this sample up.
