Love love love this tea! Smooth, sweet, fruity with a long flowery finish and aftertaste, beautiful medium amber liquor…absolutely no bitterness or astringency. Very complex. This is a great tea for sipping on its own…if milk or sweetener were added it would just ruin this tea. This tea loves to shine on its own.
