The leaves of this tea smell AMAZING… which made me immediately worried that it would be one of many teas that smells better than it tastes. I also haven’t been a fan of the “green + black teas” I’ve tried so far. The last fruity green+black tea I had was Passion Fruit Jasmine by Persimmon, and the black tea portion was stronger than the green tea and it tasted very bitter. So I was worried about this one…

In stark contrast to my expectations, this tea is DELICIOUS! It tastes like it smells, which is really impressive. The fruit flavors are strong and perfect. I think I enjoyed this more after the second steep because the first steep was a little bitter, but the second one was more mellow (black tea-wise) yet the fruit flavor remained strong. Very delicious! I’m having it without rock sugar, and it definitely doesn’t need sugar.

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
