I recived this sample in a fabulous giveaway from CrowKettle, thanks!
The flavouring is kind of nicely layered in this tea. At first I taste creamy textured dried fig, followed by baked apple and finally the tingling nip of cloves. I don’t really taste the anise and in the end the apple dominate the flavouring. I can see where ifjuly got the reference of cider, as the tea itself is tannic and drying in the mouth. The tea has a floral note and is slightly bitter. I don’t really find it that spicy but on the other hand I have a high tolerance for spice. Not a must have for me as I have apple and fig teas I prefer but I am happy to have had the chance to try it!
