This tea is imported from Holland. A quick cruise of amazon.com indicates it is out of stock. That may indicate this tea has been discontinued. This is a bagged tea wrapped in a paper envelope. It smells nicely fruity upon opening. I steeped this mug style for 3 minutes with boiling water.
The bag plumps but not much. The brew is nice and dark and the scent does not match my expectation based on the ingredient list. It aroma is kind of prickly like mango or some other tropical fruit with a bit of pomegranate.
The taste is definitely raspberry and strawberry. Weird how the scent is different. This isn't going to knock your socks off but it is a very pleasant little cup. I know the tea is in there but it does not stand out. The fruit flavor seems natural enough and though a bit sweet, this is not candy water. If you can find this and it is cheap then it is a nice enough cup.
