This is from way back in November and I’m just opening it now. If there was ever doubt that I’m a procrastinator..

I’m pleasantly surprised by this one. As Ozli noted, it tastes a bit like David’s Forever Nuts (must be the apple and nuts thing), but there are some textural differences in the way the apple flavour and sweetness come across.

At its best and thickest, it tastes a lot like a baked apple dessert, along with all the fine spices and stuffing. Other sips sometimes come across as watery and unnaturally sweet, with a sour tang, which is not fantastic. It’s still a fun rooibos to drink and I don’t think I’ll have any problem getting through an ounce of this, however.

Ok, so it’s not just me who is behind on trying teas that have been sitting there forever. :)

Yeah seriously, I have too many unopened teas sitting neglected in my cupboard. Poor teas. Life just isn’t fair, LOL!

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green teas, as well as some black teas (flavoured, unflavoured, Indian, Chinese, etc). Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but I otherwise like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
