I bought a sample of this with an order a while back! So it isn’t the freshest to review, but it’s still pretty tasty (I need to stop with late reviews!). This blend just sounded dreamy – apricot, osmanthus, jasmine – all with a black tea base. The result of the black tea is a little light, just barely leaving a color to the cup. There is plenty of flavor though! Certainly apricot/peach and I did see pieces of fruit in the blend. Plenty of jasmine petals, however I’ve tasted some VERY jasmine flavored teas before and this doesn’t have quite the strength in jasmine that I’d like. I’m not sure what osmanthus should taste like. I had an osmanthus tea a few years ago and I think I remember tasting peach just from the osmanthus or else a very sweet flavor? But that is just my experience of osmanthus from one tea and many years ago. Overall, a very tasty blend, just wishing more jasmine. I’ve certainly had some really bad peach/apricot teas and this isn’t one of them.
