Wow. Such a mislabeled tea! I got this tea as a free sample in my TG order (a couple of months ago). It has been sitting in my tea drawer ever since. I’ve had such bad luck with fruit teas lately (especially ones named after seasons), that I’ve been afraid to try it. I shouldn’t have waited so long.

This tea is pretty yummy. When you open the package, it smells like caramel. When brewed it tastes like caramel and then when sugar is added it brings out a green apple flavor and tastes like a caramel apple. It brews up to a nice dark red-purple color.

The name of this tea had me imagining rose hips and hibiscus and other horrid things. Thankfully none of those flavors are in this tea, despite the fact that those ingredients are in the tea. While I wouldn’t go out of my way to order this tea, if I was ordering something else from TG, I’d definitely throw some of this in the order.

This tea should have been named caramel apple. Why did they name it Spring Fruit?!?!

2 tsp to 11 oz for 10 min, and it was a little weak. I’ll add 3 tsp (if I have that much left) next time.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 7 min, 45 sec
