This is an interesting one. The predominant flavor I’m getting is the sour apple, but I can find the the honeybush vanilla if I look for it (or if I sniff it). I haven’t yet tried snowbud on its own so it’s difficult for me to identify it. I feel like this is one that could vary a lot from cup to cup, since its components are so different in size; I did make an effort to shake it up but the bag is pretty full so there wasn’t a lot of room and I wound up with a lot of apple pieces this time. I might prefer it with a more balanced mix.
As I continue to sip it and search for adjectives, I keep coming back around to “light”. Its flavor is a relatively gentle one that disappears from the tongue quickly. I like having some subtle teas for slow afternoons (or mornings where I don’t need more caffeine) but I feel like it’s easily forgotten (as evidenced by the fact that I’ve had this for months and only drank it twice). It’ll probably get more play as the winter goes on and I get more sore throats like the one I’m attempting to shake off now.
