The inspiration for this tea came to us while driving through Middletown Virginia at beginning of the fall. If anyone has driven around Shenandoah Valley in the middle of the season then you will have to agree with us on that there is nothing more inviting than the smell of soggy trees and fragrant apples. Steep City Teas combines the smell and the taste of country apples to make one delicious black tea. We blended black tea for the earthy tones of fall, added sweet, juicy red apples pieces for the taste combined with cranberry, rose hips, and hibiscus for a perfect blend. Try it, you will not be disappointed!
