I blended this tea when Ovation tea offered some of us a chance to blend our own with their ‘create your own’ blend tool for free.
I actually ordered the honeybush but was accidentally sent the black tea. They are super nice and are going to send me a corrected batch. So, look for another review of this same blend but made with honeybush soon.
This tea is sooo good. It smells great in the bag and brews up just as nice and tasty. The black tea seems to be of a high quality with little astringency. I was working and didn’t even pay attention to how many minutes I steeped it and it still came out great. The predominant flavors in this are brown sugar and cinnamon with a touch of apple flavor. The apple doesn’t overwhelm it like a lot of apple flavored teas. It really does taste like an apple pie. Last winter I was trying really hard to lose weight and all I wanted was apple pie. I could never find a tea to fill that craving and I would have killed for this one. I love it. Can you tell? I did good, if I do say so myself. :)
