The apple flavour is kind of sour (like a Granny Smith) and sadly doesn’t smell very good. The spices are nice enough, but I’m not too excited about them.
From reading, it’s difficult to find a nice apple tea.
This one unfortunately isn’t for me.
I stumbled on Pekoe Tea Lounge as I was walking down the street. I had this one in house. I have been SEARCHING forever for a great tasting, not too artificial or chemical tasting apricot tea. This one smelled so good. Like sweet, dried but juicy, apricots. I ordered a large French press. I am unsure how long it steeped for but I am guessing between 3-5 min before I pressed the plunger down. It tasted like a medium bold black tea with a nice apricot flavour. It is slightly artificial but still quite delicious. There is a very slight sweetness. Very similar to fresh, dried apricots. The tea got astringent towards the end of the French press but I am not surprised as it would have been sitting for about an hour.
This one is OK. I don’t think I care for the Ceylon-heavy base tea, but I do like the flavours. It’s almost more peach than strawberry, even though it does smell quite strongly of strawberry.
This is another one I think would be better iced – either cold steep or flash chilled.
Meh. A 3 minute steep and the base is turning bitter. I’ll have to try a cold steep, because it smells AMAZING.
