Found this one in our tea cupboard and decided to give it a try. Unlike many of the fruit teas we have tried lately, this one is a flavoured tea (a.k.a. there are no chunks of real fruit). The base of the tea is Ceylon and Keemun leaves which is a fancy way of saying that this is basically an orange pekoe/english breakfast tea that has a little apricot flavouring blended in…

The tea has a nice chocolate brown colour after steeping and smells like an english breakfast – the flavour is much the same as it smells with a slight hint of apricot. I liked the apricot flavouring and it seemed to enhance the tea – not a bad tea overall. Personally, I prefer more adventurous black teas.

A couple of reviewers on the Murchie’s website mentioned that they liked this one iced with lemon or in a latte. I would imagine that this would lend itself well to both of these methods. I will have to give that a try and then update this posting later!
