Tasting Notes

Sight: This tea has beautiful red undertones. The pieces vary in size, but not by too much. I can see bright pink rose petals sprinkled throughout the loose leaf. The tea steeps a deep red colour.

Smell: The loose leaf smells fruity and floral; maybe even a little tart. The ingredients of this tea all blend together to create a captivating aroma. Steeping the tea brings out the spiciness of the cinnamon and cloves. The fruity and floral scents I was picking up earlier are much more muted now.

Taste: As you may guess, this tea tastes fruity, floral, and spicy, with a hint of tartness. The subtle spiciness gives this tea a very interesting flavour profile.


⭐ ⭐ ⭐

From the beautiful colours, to the aroma, and the flavour profile, I very much enjoyed the overall experience of this tea.


I imagine this tea would be really good iced.
