This was tasty but kind of mild without any kind of sweetener to give it some depth. I definitely expected a more sour punch to it, given the name, and was somewhat disappointed in it.
“(backlogging from last night) I finally bought a scale, so I measured the amount of tea I've been putting in the Zarafina - 11.85 g for 16 oz of water (for the sour apple). A bit more tart than...” Read full tasting note

“So I tried this again, this time with a little more of the blend and with agave nectar. When it was still very hot, it was actually quite good! As it cooled, though, I didn't like it as much. ” Read full tasting note

I’ve tried a few of Adagio’s fruity herbal teas and this one is my least favorite so far. I opened the bag and was overpowered by the smell of cheap perfume – way too much “natural apple flavor” added into this one for my liking. I’m usually a green tea person and this was a failed attempt at trying something new so take may review with a grain of salt.
Mmmmm!! Adagio’s Sour Apple is one of my all-time favorite teas to make iced (I don’t even want to try it hot). This tastes exactly like a liquified sour apple. On a hot summer day, it’s the most refreshing iced tea you can have. Not too strong, not too weak, not too sour- it’s perfect. And oh so tasty!
It’s a nice sour blend. It’s got a hint of apple but i tasted the hibiscus and cranberry much more. It has an almost layered taste, where the tea has a fruity taste first and then the sour after. It’s very interesting and I’ll need another cup before I decide whether or not I like this but as of right now I don’t plan to re-order. I do intend to finish my sample though.
When I opened the tin I could definitely smell the sour apple. It took all I had not to eat it:) I steeped one heaping teaspoons in 6oz boiled purified water for 5 min. It had a bright red liquor from the cranberries. For a minute I even thought that I had mistakenly steeped this tisane in boiling cranberry juice and I was even more convinced of it when I took my 1st sip. This tisane tastes nothing like green apple, cran apple at best. It tastes like the hot cranberry juice I thought I steeped it in. False advertising alert! Don’t get me wrong, if you’re looking for a cranberry herbal tisane it is VERY good, but you will be very disappointed if you expect it to taste like it the title
