Brewed this a little different from the steeping instructions, because it was already getting really dark and I didn’t want it to get up and walk away! As before this smells strong. I think it might be the base. There’s a lot of black tea smell and a little apricot, and I’m getting lemon myrtle too.
This is a decent fruity black tea. There’s no bitterness to the base like I’ve noticed with other apricot teas, but it is too astringent for my taste. The lemon keeps it from being boring, and there’s a juiciness to the aftertaste. I probably wouldn’t restock but this cup is pretty good!
