Meh. I dunno, this one was ok… but not great.
Rather bubble-gummy actually, and in my world, that is like the “friend zone” of teas. Once you fall in, there is NO getting out.
I couldn’t really identify the apple or any other notes. It was just… candy like and that was it. shrugs
I don’t see how it tastes anything like Ice-wine. It’s drinkable… nothing wrong with it. but it reminds me of so many other boring teas that I likely wouldn’t know the difference if someone swapped out my mug.
SO, the rating for this is so low, because it has such potential! but fails on so many levels!!!! and now I’m tempted to go back and find every “bubblegum” review I’ve written and change those scores to.
Ugh, I am not in the best mood. Don’t you mess with me tea. Not today :/
Oh wow I just noticed. This review is #555. I don’t know why but that strikes me as odd! in a good way, I think?

Sipdown! Not particularly impressed with this one, but it is possible that it picked up some odd flavours while I was storing it. Kind of sweet, a bit grapey, mild and smooth base… but also a weird herbally (?) note that I picked up from the dry tea/wet leaves/steeped aroma/in the flavour. Might be another case of flavour contamination although it’s not as prominent here. Unfortunately, some of the teas from Janelle were ayurvedic teas and ones with other weird ingredients, and I think that I would have been wise to try them all quickly and keep them separated… but I foolishly didn’t. Ah well, live and learn. Minus the weird note and plus a bit more flavour, I think this probably would be a fairly decent tea, but not one I’m sad to have missed out on. Given that I’m not a fan of wine anyhow, that’s probably not terribly surprising.

Aperitif, a drama in 2 acts.

Act 1, where life is good:
- Dry smell: Oh, yum!
- Steeped smell: Oh YUM!!!! Tart! Apple-y! Grape-y! Almost candy-y!

Interlude, where Aperitif is already celebrated as a massive success:
- How can they only put this in the wine collection?! How cruel! How I wish I could go and buy a 100g tin of it, it’s one of the best smelling teas EVER!

Act 2, where the true nature of Aperitif is revealed:
- First sip: uh…
- Second sip: uhhhhhh….
- Third sip: ew.

Final scene, where disappointment is almost as bitter as the tea:
- How could they do this to me?! How can this tea not live up to its smell? Why does it have to be bitter, and taste of an actual aperitif, including the taste of alcohol which I dislike very much? Why is it not tart at all? So many questions, not a single answer! Farewell, Aperitif, we shall never meet again!

END.

Of the three in the Wine Collection this is my favourite…

But that’s not saying much considering that it’s still not that great. Just better than the other two. A agree with Eisenherz, the smell is lovely both dry and brewed, but once you take a sip it falls rather flat. To me it comes off as rather soapy and slightly bitter, which is unfortunate because from the smell it had potential. I’m not sure where they went wrong… it’s quite bland for a black tea, with nothing to really give it oomph. So sad, not what I was expecting at all.

After seeing your experiences with this collection, I have stopped cursing DT for not putting this up on the wall. Maybe its better that way…

Eisenherz

I still need to try the other 2, but seeing you liked this one best, I sure am in no hurry now! Glad to see you didn’t hate it as much as I did, though!

Faith

Kay: They are all awful and not even worth it. The saddest thing is they all taste like recycled flavours… with better versions already out there.

Eisenherz: I did hate it, just can never bring myself to rate anything under 50 unless I truly could not drink it. Maybe I’m too soft on them…

I’m probably not the best person to judge this tea, as I really am not an alcohol drinker, thus giving me a very limited knowledge on what to compare this to. That being said, it smelled delicious and I literally had a cupful left of it. So, here I am.

It’s… not bad? Mild, a little fruity, but more tea-y. Not really much to say.
