Loose leaf: Smells very fruity. I can see nice big chunks of dried fruit and lemongrass, which is why I decided to drink this at night. It does not have very much actual tea in it.
Steeped 4 minutes with 80 *C water. 1.5 tsp leaf in my teapot of 20 oz/590 mL size.
The sweetness of the dried fruit (strawberries, lemon, watermelon?, pineapple, opuntia/prickly pear/cactus fruit) Have I ever told you guys about my love for all thinks cactus? I have a collection of 55 succulents and cacti, including several cold hardy opuntia (prickly pear cacti) that live outside (in Canada) all year. I absolutely adore my cacti. I hope to start getting fruit on them one of these years.
Anyway, back to the tea. Lemongrass ties in nicely with the other ingredients, giving it a lemon/citrus taste (but in a less in-your-face kind of way). No sourness at all, which is so refreshing in a DT blend.
