This is an herbal tisane containing apple, coconut, peppermint, blackberry leaves, and the ubiquitous artificial flavoring. This attractive mixture of colorful ingredients has a strong aroma that brings to mind a York Peppermint Patty.

I brewed this tisane at a temperature just under boiling for 5 minutes, per the instructions. The resulting golden brown liquor is not nearly as aromatic or minty smelling as the dried pieces. Many of the tiny leaf and dust particles made it through the ceramic strainer.

Had I tasted this blindfolded, I would not have easily detected the coconut. Even concentrating, I get more of the floral/fruity undertone than the coconut. When I added a little bit of stevia I detected another underlying flavor, but I can’t identify it. The tea itself is satisfying, with a nice, smooth body, so I guess the “cream” part is apropos.

This isn’t bad. I might drink it after a meal or when I’m feeling chilled. Let’s just say that though I wouldn’t buy it myself, if I received it as a gift I would find time for it.
