It’s unique and I enjoy it – but I do agree with the reviewer below me it reminds me a little of a cleaner. At first I thought “soapy” but that fades. It may be the way the fruits are blended. The first sips I got florals, the second sips I seemed to get more of fruit. It is not bitter, but it can be, sort of borderline when the fruit rind taste comes out. Did 2 tsp in a pot with hot, boiling and 3 sugar cubes. This tea arrived FAST – I’m curious on this company and am excited to try the other teas. The smell of this one is excellent. I don’t think it will be a keeper, but it’s not bad.
