God does this tea smell good in the bag. Like luscious fruit candy. I let it steep for 6 minutes on everyone’s recommendations. It’s better than I remember- sweet, but not cloyingly so. I think it would be an excellent summer iced tea with frozen fruit. Peach is mostly on the aftertaste- initial taste is citrusy and orange, maybe some of the pineapple or apple. Definitely fruity, but not much else. Still, pleasant cuppa.

This tea was good, but not as good as the smell would indicate. A mellow white tea, tastes of flowers at first then settles into tangy fruit and and aftertaste of apricot. Refreshing and not overly tannic. Felt like i was on the edge of oversteeping by following the directions of 3 minutes.

I really do love this tea. Smells of bourbon vanilla, maybe a touch of cinnamon or warm spice that smells familiar. Maybe slight caramel? Like others have said, it smells better than it tastes, but taste is not bad at 90C for 3 min. Vanilla is not as present as the almost subtle chai flavor in taste.

I think it burns easily. It is a green tea/black tea blend, and the green is not robust and it tastes like a mellow black tea. Tannins are present just not super strong.

Flavors: Caramel, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Spices, Vanilla, Whiskey
