I got this made as a lat while I was at the store this afternoon, and sipped it while I read my book and waited for my fiancé to finish grocery shopping. As with many of David’s teas, I found it smelled fantastic, but left a lot to be desired. It almost smelled as though it would be better iced, or maybe even as a bubble tea, but having it hot just wasn’t cutting it for me. Don’t get me wrong—I finished it no problem, but it definitely lacked anything in the way of substance. I was not at all tempted to get a sample bag of this, even though I imagine I could probably play around with it a bit. There are other teas on my mind right now though, so I think I’ll be ok. I also imagine (horror of horrors) that this tea would probably be better straight, because that might help the tartness/freshness of the apple stand out more. I found that as a lat, the milk just muted whatever little flavour there was.
I did, however, replenish my supply of Sugar and Spice, because I find that tea to be flavourful and warming and perfect for a cold winter’s day. Oh, and I also tasted their new maple agave, which was so delicious I could have just drank it from the bottle! I didn’t pick any up though, as I find my love affair with rock sugar is sufficing for now.
Gorgeous, light fall weather outside. Blazing sunshine, a touch of crispness to the breeze, and leaves swirling about your feet as you walk. It’s one of those days where I’m just happy to be alive.
