Hm. Reading the other reviews and refreshing my memory about the description of this tea, I think I’ll hold off on a final verdict here. Tried this tonight. No fruit smell of any kind to the dry leaf. I did see small flowers in this so I assume I got the correct tea. :) A smell of malt and a hint of earth maybe. Steeped is about the same smell. It is a nice color of amber and the taste is smooth and relatively mellow. A nice overall cup, but again, not even the barest hint of fruit of any kind. Maybe it’s me, though I’m not sick (that I know of) and other things today and this evening have tasted as I expected them to. I will try this again tomorrow and see if I can find what others are tasting!

Tea afficianado & founder of the Midwest Tea Festival. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :) I am also the proprietor of Tea-Historic, a tiny online dinosaur themed tea shop.
