Apple is a pretty mellow flavor, but it definitely comes out in this tea and isn’t buried at all. The spices really complement the juicy apple cider taste but it’s more of a standard cinnamon apple flavor than a chai. Still, it’s a refreshing change from a standard masala chai.
Definitely follow Adagio’s instructions and use 2tsp of tea per 8oz water. As a force of habit I take this with milk, but I’m sure it’s just as delicious straight up. Or maybe steeped in actual apple cider? With brown sugar? Hmm I might have to reorder a sample and try that out.
