This was my second sample from the Lexie collection, chosen because of late, apple is just one of my favorite evening un-mint flavors.

I’ve never messed much successfully with matcha. Let me rephrase that: I make messes with matcha. But in these tidy little bags, it’s ungoofable. And there was the perfect balance of real apple-y apple and a hint of ginger (rather than half the spice canister) to make this a cup of fruity near-perfection.

Another correction: 2/3 a cup of fruity near-perfection. My son was toodling around in the kitchen; said it smelled good enough to be a candle, so I had to share a sample. It’s OK. Kid bonding over a cup of tea, even when said kid is older than some of you, was good for this mom’s heart.
