The dry leaf, as I opened the package, smelled very strong. Now, I’m not a drinker, but the picture on the package makes me think of some sort of fruity drink, and I can definitely smell the orange, cherry, and something…that makes me think of a fruity alcoholic drink.
The tea, of course, is not as strong. I’m not sure what size this mug really is, so I put in more leaf than I normally would have. Also, the shape of the tea, it just didn’t seem to scoop out very well in my spoon, and I wanted to make sure I have enough.
I do like the tea. I wouldn’t say it was a Tequila Sunrise as brewed, but it’s not unpleasant. Not sure anything really POPS out at me, but more blended and subtle than the dry scent.
