In the tin, this smells more fruity than floral to me, which is surprising. The tea’s aroma after steeping is quite something. There’s a deep chocolatey smell to the tea with some citrusy/florally notes. MMMMMmmmmm.

The tea is clear and medium orange-brown.

Flavor-wise, there’s a chocolatey/mocha note that is pleasing. The floral/fruit is subtle and lovely. I have turned a corner on hibiscus and I now enjoy it, but I don’t think I’d recognize this as hibiscus. The combination of hibiscus and mallow is more like dragonfruit to me, though I get hibiscus in the aftertaste. But I have to look for it.

Definitely different, and quite tasty.

It’s a decent tea, no doubt. I absolutely love almost everything by Mariage Freres, but this one is a bit too overpowering in the flowery department. But it’s not undrinkable, nor bad in any way. It just doesn’t rise to my idea of perfection that I like in my cup.
