This one is supposed to have hints of strawberry and citrus. I am honestly not sure if I notice that or not, but I have never been able to notice the subtleties of wine, either, so maybe it's just me. (Or perhaps my milk and sweetener are covering that up? It could be. But I find all the varieties to be pretty bitter without milk and sweetener.) I do think this is a bit milder than the Cavalla kind, and definitely less spicy than Maya or Pumpkin Spice.
This smells absolutely wonderful in the package. I use three tablespoons and fill my coffee maker up to the 5-cup mark (well, halfway between 4 and 6 because 5 isn't marked) with water. That translates into about two mugs' worth of beverage. This is somewhat less product than recommended on the package, but that is one of those things you can play with until you find an amount that suits your taste.
Please note: this has some natural oils that come through into the decanter. These can clog up paper filters (I have found this out the hard way). So paper filters really slow down the brewing. I found that a metal permanent filter results in faster brewing and doesn't get clogged by the natural oils. (The bag recommends a metal filter but doesn't say why!) Also, this product is gluten free and vegan (and you can always add almond milk or rice milk instead of dairy milk to keep it that way).
So glad I found this stuff. I'm totally addicted.
