I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve had this tea. It’s one of my favorites. I was in a bit of a hurry today, and only steeped for 3 minutes. I think I prefer 5; at that steep, it’s a thicker, richer cup. At 3, it’s very light and delicate with apple being very prominent, and the cinnamon a barely-there note. Both ways are yummy!
Even though I’ve fallen for *LiberTEAS*’s Breakfast Blend, I still hold this tea in high regard. I’m thinking her loose-leaf shall be my at-home, pre-work tea to gently wake me up, whilst this shall comfort me and take care of me at work (since the individually-wrapped bags are good to keep in my desk).
I’ve figured out why I like this tea so much. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy and like I’ve had some of my mom’s apple dumplings. No, this isn’t as good as Mama France’s apple dumpings, but it’s close enough to make me smile.
My last bag of this at work. Luckily, a fresh box is sitting on the tea shelf at home and I can replenish my stash.
