For being a marketable brand dishing out teas, Alterra really missed it here. The tea smells great in the tin… but if you really want to enjoy it, keep it there. The moment it touches hot water, all hopes and dreams are crushed. One would expect the brilliance in its aroma to at least help in the taste department, but overall, it ended up being warm ginger water. Though I can see where the tin’s comments on the tea being “spicy and sweet to tart and fruity” can come in (see: smell), it most certainly didn’t make the transition to the taste department. Makes a great potpourri though…
