I took advice from earlier and used stright-up boiling water. My mug is almost too hot to touch, but I can certainly smell the peppercorns, pistachios and almonds this time around. I quite like it. Won’t be able to touch my lips to it for a few more minutes, but so far it’s even better than I remember.
The fruitiness hits you at the sides of the tongue, and the pepperiness kind of dances along the edges of the middle and launches spikes into your soft palate. It’s reeeeally nice. I get the nuttiness more as a kind of matte aftertaste than an actual taste, which is disappointing after the lovely smell.
I keep not choosing this tea whenever I make tea, and I don’t know why. It’s lovely! (And will hopefully stop me from falling asleep while I’m working late into the night!)

I really like this blend, and, like you, don’t make it nearly often enough. The apples especially cheer me.

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
