|Those are some big bits!|
After my aroma confusion settled and my curiosity got the best of me I steeped the tea, the leaves become much sweeter with the notes of mint, apple, and coconut becoming very strong. They mingle in a great pile of confusion that is not unpleasant. Underneath the dominant notes hides a delicate citrus note that is very much the shy friend in a group of extroverts. It smiles and waves and then does its own thing in the background. The aroma of the liquid is immensely sweet, like baked apples and rather heady coconut, the mint is a bit milder and that shy citrus note is still present.
The taste is a mix of mint, apples, and coconut, all very well balanced and blended and sweet. It is a sweet dance of confusion in my mouth, is this tea tropical or harvest themed, refreshing or calming? I just don't know!! The mouth feel is a blend of smooth and tingly, which is my favorite thing about this tea. This tea is not bad but this particular blend of flavors clash too much for my liking. I very much so feel like my five year old self that would have freak out when my foods would touch each other on their plate, the flavors are too distinct and strong to make a suitable 'me' blend.
