I prepared this tea using 185-degree water and steeping the leaves for 2.5 minutes. As I suspected from my visual assessment, there was little, if any, evidence of black tea leaves being used in this blend. The produced liquid was a pale spring greenish-yellow, translucent and mild, without any trace of a brown color that would be imparted by black tea leaves. The flavor of this tea is mild yet refreshing. The fruit flavor is present but not overly assertive or pungent. It is a sweet fruit flavor, mostly focusing on the orange and pineapple flavors, that is naturally sweet. I enjoyed this as a hot tea, but really, the tropical fruit flavors do make this tea an ideal candidate as a great iced tea. The flowers that provided visual appeal to the blend didn't seem to contribute much to the flavor. The green tea base is very subtle, and works perfectly with the fruit flavors.
