Lightly sweet and smoth, this tea is very good for tea amateurs. Love the smell and if you do not like strong tea, just leave it for 2minutes.

Nice relaxing tea. A sweeter aroma compared to red bush. I love red teas and I would recommend this one very much!

What a sweet tea!
Very simple in taste but very satisfying. As the Tasting Notes say, it is very woodsy and I personally find it to be a very comforting tea- very relaxing. Would recommend!
