This one is definitely on the disappointing side. No matter how long I steep it it is just too insipid. There is a hint of apples and spice, enough to make me want to drink something appley and spicy, but it just doesn’t deliver on its promise. It is not entirely flavorless, but far too mild to make me happy. I might eventually finish the canister, given that I’m on a diet and not drinking real apple cider much any more, but I would never buy this again.

Profile

Bio

I’m an expat Brit in America, a lifelong tea lover in that British “milk and two sugars” way, who 6 years ago learned to love her tea without sugar, and now is learning to love it without milk. Two summers ago I learned how to make a proper glass of American iced tea. I’m new to indie tea and having an alarming amount of fun trying out all the amazing blends I keep finding! I used to just drink the black tea I brought home from my visits to the UK plus things like Yogi ginger, and now I am finding a whole new world of tea out there to explore.

Right now I’m mostly interested in flavoured teas as I find those the easiest to enjoy without milk and especially in teas with little to no caffeine as too much caffeine can really send my body chemistry into a tailspin. In the early morning I indulge myself with a couple of cups of something caffeinated but after that it’s noncaf all the way. My teacups are pint sized and I usually have one near me.
