It is a sort of orangy red. It is a very rich looking liqueur. It smells intoxicating. It is not too strong, but it does smell a lot like the orange flavoring. The tea shines through that though and smells vegital.

The tea is very interesting. It tastes sort of like Swiss chard with bergamot orange dripped over it. It is velvety and sweet, although I think I steeped it a little too high, a little too long. It is far more bitter than I was expecting it to be. It tastes like the bergamot flavor, not like the tea sort of bitterness, so I’m not too worried about having over steeped it, but the flavor profile seems to be a lot stronger than I was expecting. As I get to the bottom of the cup the flavor has changed a little bit, and there is a bitter sweetness there that isn’t in the rest of the cup. It is sort of like the bitter green grapes, and it makes my mouth pucker a little bit, but the sweetness compliments the orange flavor well. At this stage I like sipping it better because slurping it seems to wash out the flavor too much.
