The steeped tea is yellow, with a strong fresh apple scent… sort of a tart, maybe green apple.
The tea isn’t sweet or apple-juice toned at all. It’s a touch bitter and astringent and has only the lightest, barest hint of fruit to its finish… and that seems more plummy than apple.
As it cools it takes on more of the taste of a green (maybe granny smith) apple’s skin. It doesn’t have a flesh or juice taste.
The more I drink, the less I like it. Not finishing the cup.
