Special thanks to Jillian for this one! This is the first tea I have had from this company!!!
HOLY Brambleberries, Batman!
I was afraid because this is chalk-full of fruit, Rosehib, and Hibiscus. BUT…you know what? This isn’t half bad! I’m pleasantly surprised! This is a sugary-fruity-juicy-berry-yet-tropical-mesh of flavors and it works well!
WOW! I can taste those scary ingredients but the strawberry, pineapple, papaya, Raspberries, and Apple are present – and more in the forefront – to counteract the dreaded hibiscus. YAY!
I’m drinking this hot but think it would be delightful iced!
Not too shabby!
As much as I want to like this tea because of its tasty apple flavour, no matter how I steep it there’s Just. Something. Missing. It either needs stronger spices or a more robust black tea base – like a malty Assam or a smokey Keemun.
I’m typing this up as I wait for the first trick-or-treaters to ring the doorbell and I figured I’d make myself something autumn-y to get in the spirit.
I love the strong, ‘real’ apple flavouring of this tea but the black tea base is just so flat that it takes away from the whole thing. Oh well.
Steeped 4.5 minutes. Very apple-y with hints of cinnamon. The black tea could be a bit stronger, but I might just need to steep it for longer.
