Tastes like a warm candied (caramel) apple, minus the sugar. I quite enjoy it, though it doesn’t feel like I’m drinking tea.

I did not expect to like this one. For one — caramel? In tea? Come on now. But you know what? It totally works. This is a wonderful blend. There is a slight hint of fruit (which usually I don’t care for) and it completely works with the flavors. I was so pleasantly surprised! Resteeping made it lose it’s flavor, understandably. This is another winner from my Kusmi Essentials box! I recommend picking one of those up, fellow tea drinkers. I’m a new Kusmi convert.
