The smell of the dry leaves is amazing…crazy fruity!! You can smell the different fruits individually.

After brewing, though, the fruits meld together so that none of them are really identifiable individually. There’s a taste that’s definitely “fruity/flowery”, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t assign it to any particular component. I ended up brewing for 5 minutes based on the dry smell (if it’s going to be fruity, I want it strong), and there’s a slightly bitter astringency that I think wouldn’t be there if I had brewed for 3 minutes. Will play around with it more.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
