This smells really good right out of the canister, much like one of my favorite candies, which are old-fashioned sour gummy peaches. So of course, this gave me cause for excitement! I found while brewing it almost had a “perfumy” quality, but it was not unpleasant. The flavor, however, was a bit of a let down and actually is pretty artificial in taste. I was expecting something more sweet and fruity/juicy. The main note is candied peach w/ a hint of candied ginger that is not overpowering. A great flavor concept, but it left something to be desired. It is a bit better sweetened, and two bags are needed if using a large mug. I will finish my stash, but won’t re-buy.
