This tea both smells and tastes strongly of apples. The currants and cloves combine to form a certain chai-like quality that I find distracts from the apples and cinnamon, which I feel should be the spotlight flavors. In the end, it is pleasant enough to enjoy, however, I would rather spend my time elsewhere enjoying a tea that highlighted the apples more.
I realize I’m probably trying to make this tea something it’s not meant to be.
The base tea is almost too mild, I feel like it doesn’t add anything.
Be very careful with steep times. This can turn into a big chai mess if left too long.
I really enjoy this tea as a winter warmer kind of tea. It helps me to feel warm and get through the last couple of months of winter after the holidays. The spiciness of the cinnamon is not overpowering at all. It perfectly adds to the flavor of the nuts and the tang of the citrus. Not too spicy and not too sweet. It’s a well balanced winter treat.
It disturbs me me how much I like this tea. It tastes like a warm day at the beach, just like summer to me. It has a note of honey like sweetness that perfectly balances the tangy citrus flavor. It’s great hot or iced. Simply one of my favorites.
