Great cup of tea. Being a lifelong tea hunter, I love it when I find something unique and balanced. This tea delivers on both a fruit forward scent and perfectly balanced flavors. Subtle Earl Grey (wouldn't really know it, if you weren't looking for it) mixed with sweet umami fruitiness, that is not cloying. Not overly sweet or "chemically" flavored, just clean crisp black tea with hints of deep summer flavors. I seldom give tea as gifts, as it's such a personal preference. But I have ordered three of these tins (deliciously packaged by the way) as gifts for friends knowing it will please a wide range of tea drinkers from occasional sippers to diehard enthusiasts. Great Find!
