A long, long, time ago, in a land far, far away….. Well not really, but back when I was in university I received a gift of a tea for two. It was a small teapot with two cups and saucers, which would all stack together and there was several different decaffeinated fruit flavoured teas. The teas I remember were apricot, blueberry, apple, and lemon. I do not remember what kind of tea base it was, but just decaf black tea. For space saving, I took the teas out of the identifying boxes they came in, so I have no idea what the brand name of the teas were.
This was the best apricot tea I have ever had in my life!
And to this day I have been searching and searching for a similar tasting tea.
I unfortunatley told many friends and family of my search for this tea, and continue to this day to receive gifts of apricot tea. Now I love tea gifts, but I have an overabundance of apricot tea, that I don’t really like, because its just not the same as what I originally had.
This tea is ok. I mostly taste the flavour of the black tea. There is a slight apricot flavour but it doesn’t stand out too much. It also has a slight soapy aftertaste.
Every once in a while I get into my cupboard dedicated to apricot tea and re-try a few just to see if anything hits the right spot. The search continues…
