This came as a sample with my Boxing Day haul. I probably would not have purchased it for myself, but I am so glad it came with my order. I love it!

There are generous chunks of dried apple in this tea. The smell is wonderful! Apple is the most dominant smell, followed by vanilla.

The package suggests brewing this tea at 92C/198F for 3-4 minutes, which doesn’t seem right to me for a white/green mix. I instead brewed it for 2:30 at 180F.

There was a slight bitter aftertaste which hints to me that I oversteeped it a little bit, but otherwise the taste was amazing. It’s like having apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Cinnamon would have been a lovely addition to this tea. I taste a very faint cinnamon flavor, but it’s not listed in the ingredients so it may be my imagination.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Bio

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
