I used a little over 1 tsp because I use 8 ounces of water and I never know if steeping recommendations are for 6 or 8 ounces so I just added a little more tea. I also steeped for an extra minute so even if that was wrong it is a forgiving tea!
This tea is JUICY! It makes your mouth water and the flavors are really quite wonderful! I could not detect any artificial flavors even if they are used and I am pretty sensitive to artificial flavorings.
I am also not typical a fan of apricot flavored teas but this one is soooo good!
I think the sweet raspberry – not tart which really helps to mellow the usually more pungent earthy apricot and while I do like earthy teas, apricot and I do not normally get along.
The aroma of this tea is super sweet super yummy with this almost vanilla aroma to it.
No sugar is needed to add to this tea its really quite perfectly sweet and balanced all on its own and I can only imagine adding sugar would make it all the more decedent or dipping some sugar cookies into it but I have had my allotment of cookies for today lol.
I am impressed – I purchased some 52 teas that had been revived from iHeartTeas.com and this was included as a free sample! This lovely lady blends her own teas and I give her two huge thumbs up – if only I had more thumbs!
Try her teas people they are dang good! :)

Thank you so much for your kind words. Seeing as this is my first official review for a tea I blended personally I will be celebrating tonight with a nice cuppa tea. Thanks for making my day. :)

Enjoy a good cuppa I know it will be good if it is your own! :) Loved it!! And thank you for a generous sample! I hate it when I only get one try with a new tea lol I was able to get three brews and a couple steeps out of each!

Kittenna

Oh, this does sound good. Wish I could have justified ordering the 52teas I had eyed up, but the credit card gave me the evil eye :(

Azzrian

I know it was so good I now want to order this and another she crafted but I am thinking I will go poor if I do.

Azzrian

Oh and this is HER blend by the way!

Scott B

This sounds like a really great flavor combination.

Azzrian

Something about it is great becuase I have tried a lot of apricot teas lately and have only found 1 I like and 1 (this one) that I love!

Scott B

Do you find apricots earthy overall-or just in most of the apricot teas that you have had?

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Again thanks so much. I couldn’t be happier that someone is enjoying something I put so much love and care into.

Good question Scott, you know, mostly in preserved and prepared foods, like dried fruits, cereals, etc. and teas but come to think of it I can’t recall the last time I had a fresh apricot!

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
