Backlog from last night.

Maybe it’s just me, but there seems to be more apple pieces in this blend than the last time I ordered. I thought this herbal couldn’t get any better. Please let there always be lots of fruit pieces in my cup.

My only complaint is that I always seem to run out too quickly. Very problematic when I want to drink this almost every evening. Instead, I end up partially hoarding it.

Flavors: Apple, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

I didn’t shake my bag properly..the first few cups were all chamomile and the last few were all apple, heh.

CrowKettle-You might be right. We switched the recipe a little bit. We are now using dried apple rings that are free from any additives instead of the apple chunks and we also switched to raw organic Himalayan goji berries from the generic stuff.

Good to know! I thought the apple pieces appeared larger than last time. I really like this switch.

I hope gravity hasn’t abandoned me and left my bag with all the chamomile at the bottom, even if I do like chamomile straight up. Regardless of the cause, I’ve enjoyed the chemistry in these recent cups. The flavour seems a little sweeter and juicier.

Glad you are enjoying the new version. I think it tastes fresher and fruitier, while still being very similar.

Bio

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 and black teas. 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 otherwise I 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..
