I steeped this then had to walk away from it for 40 minutes. When it was still hot I took a few sips. The main flavor then was caramel, which is likely what I was drawn to when smelling it in the store. There was a little orange mixed in on the sip at that point. Now that I come back to it cooled I get orange at the start of the sip that lingers until the finish when a hint of cherry and something else (the pineapple?) appear. I can’t pick out the caramel once it has cooled. Strange how much it changes with the temperature!

When I was visiting the Fauchon store in Paris, they had out little samples of the dry tea to smell. Since I can’t read French, I was relying on scent to make my choices. The scent is very heavy on the caramel when it’s dry with a hint of the fruit, mostly orange, behind it. I likely would have avoided it if I knew pineapple was involved, but I’m glad I didn’t know because I’m enjoying this one so far.

Edit* Second steeping goes right into orange flavors even when freshly steeped. It has good flavors, but I think I prefer the first steep with caramel.
