This blend seemed to be a very busy blend – it had a lot of flavors and flowers and to be honest that was my attraction to it. I like when I come across a blend with a lot going on, as I like to sort of “test myself” to see if I can taste all the flavors.
This is really GOOD! And, yes, I can taste all the flavors! The mango and peach flavors are well-balanced, and they give a pleasing, nectar-like sweetness to this cup. Very fruity, but what I like is that the hint of rose and lavender in the background cut through some of the fruit notes and give it some contrast.
The black tea is not overwhelmed by all these flavors, either. It is smooth and rich, not what I’d call robust or bold, really, but, mellow and well-rounded. This is a very well-crafted blend by Ovation Teas … I become more impressed with Ovation Teas with every new blend that I try from them.
