I bought this as a sample first and then a full tin and now even more. It is perfect just on its own, not needing sugar or milk although you could always add a little 1/4 teaspoon if you wanted to take some of the astringency out. It is very full bodied, but not overly malty as the fruit balances out the force.
I've lived in Alsace and my parents lived there for twenty years and it could not be more aptly named.
This is a lovely pick-me-up kind of tea. It's black tea, which gives you a burst of caffeine energy, and the fruit flavor really shines through to add enough sweetness so that you don't need to add anything else. Just measure, add boiling water, steep, and drink it hot or iced. No milk or sugar needed, just yummy, lo-cal energy. Great for a 3:00 p.m. slump.
Delicious dessert tea!
