|"I'd like more saffron, but my biggest complaint is that the mint is out of place."|
The flavour is, in a word, odd. It's mate with a myriad of added flavours, largely mint and a hint of saffron. I get anise and the smallest touch of apple, but the whole thing is a bit of an odd combination. Unsurprisingly, I'd like more saffron, but my biggest complaint is that the mint is out of place. It's such a strong flavour, it throws everything off balance. Also odd, I get the clove in the scent, but not in the flavour.
I love saffron, but it is rather expensive, so it's fun to try teas that have such a luxury ingredient added. Unfortunately, the saffron part of this Saffron Fusion infusion is pretty buried under an odd mishmash of other notes. It's not bad, it's just not what I wanted.
