This is a beautiful tea to look at, but because of the smell of the dryleaf I was afraid that it would taste like soapy potpourri from the smell. It definitely didn’t taste soapy, probably due to the grapefruit peel, which gave it a little zing and the berry which added a little depth.I can taste that the tea base is a green tea and there is no dryness or over-the-top grassiness, but it is easily overwhelmed by the rose and vanilla. The floral aspects are a little too strong for my tastes, but it is definitely a good quality tea and I’m very happy it’s NOT soapy!

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
