This is a fun tea.  Tea leaves has overtone of seven up, bubble gum and summer mountain breeze.  When brewed, it has hint of seven up on the background still but with prominent salty mineral on the pallate, roll it slowly on your tongue, the tea once again comes to life with sweet scent of seven up, bubble gum and the fresh mountain summer breeze.  Very little to no tanin or acidity.
