Beautiful and astringent tea for all times of the day

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Anytime.

It has a really nice fruity undertone and smooth, but astringent tea. It is not overpowering, yet strong enough. Very pleasant tea.

Fruity taste

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Weak.

Has got the fruity taste that i like. some apricot like start, and maybe more like gooseberry ending. The bitterness fits the tea well. All in all, good but weak taste.
