Big thanks to DaisyChubb for this one!
The dry scent of this is EXACTLY like apple pie. First, there is the cinnamon scent, followed by a sweet apple scent. I can even smell the buttery, crusty pastry (or is that just my imagination?)
I could just sit here and sniff this all night.
The worry is with teas that smell like heaven dry, they will lose their wonderful-ness when they are steeped. So, I am anxiously awaiting it to be ready. Will I be disappointed?
In a word, no. The scent is ever-so-slightly diminished upon steeping but not drastically so. The taste does not disappoint – fresh, sweet apples and warming cinnamon with a smooth, buttery green tea base. What could be better?
