A very kind surprise from Mel (meliorate) and I wanted to love it. Real turkish tea! the oh so nicely exotic. But sadly it turned out to be way too much hibiscus for me. Interesting apple flavour, pretty strong and in your face, but the hibiscus was just too much for me.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 45 sec

One day… one day!! There’ll be a fruit tea that contains no hibiscus!

I found a few, but admittedly it is difficult for dried fruits to stand up on their own! Speaking of turkish tea I got some authentically-turkish apple tea which of course is instant granules ;) and I was served some delicious but really artificial apple green at a kebab restaurant the other day. And a tea shop I got to has a turkish apple tea which seems to be just dried apple – maybe one of those days I will try it!

Hibiscus, it´s just not for me!

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
