thanks so much, Dinosara for sending some of this one! There seems to be two apple flavors layered here. There is that preservative apple flavor I don’t like (I’m not sure if it is actually “preservatives” but it isn’t a flavor I actually associate with apple), and then it seems there is an actual apple flavor coming from the actual apples. As I’m sipping, the preservative flavor is less present, and then the name becomes accurate. There is a very sweet flavor to it all of a sudden! I don’t know why it changes. The black tea is okay, not very distinct, but it fits well with the apple. I just wish the preservative flavor would go away.
