Backlogging (so, based almost entirely on my notes)
Experience buying from @Ashley: I bought this tea from Ashley when she was selling all of her tea. I received the tea quickly through the mail and my package was filled with many surprises. Thank you Ashley!
Appearance and aroma of dry leaf: I remember really liking the aroma.
Brewing guidelines: I used a metal basket strainer inside a ceramic 16 oz. cup, such that I put a lid over the top to keep the heat in. Cup was warmed before steeping. Stevia added.
I did four steepings, probably with my standard green tea parameters.
Aroma of tea liquor: Strong, and awesome! A quote I noted from my wife when she walked into the kitchen after brewing it, “I smell apples!”
Flavor of tea liquor: Very impressive flavor.
Overall: This one surprised us both. We didn’t think it would actually taste like apple pie, but it clearly did (really surprising with green tea as the base). Way to go, David!
