The smell of this bizarrely reminds me of a berry tart, and the taste of the first infusion is pretty similar. I’m really enjoying it, because it has the kind of bready taste that I was hoping for, but also has that little extra sweetness, and gentle berry-ish flavor. My impression of the taste seems to be different than what others have pointed out, but I do really love it. It’s sweet, and a little bit complicated, and super yummy. I might write another review that’s a little more detailed , since it’s getting a bit late here, but basically I’m blown away by this tea, and really happy I got it.
