This tea was very aromatic but the taste was surprisingly mellow. With all those berry ingredients I was expecting a very tart cup. Instead there was just enough astringency. It was earthy with a hint of fruitiness that reminded me very much of jam. The flavor lingered in my palate quite long after each sip. Overall it was very juicy and refreshing with a pleasant mouthfeel. I have some left over leaf and I can’t wait to try it iced. I would definitely recommend this tea.
