I picked up a canister of this tea last fall. The ingredients looked really good (it was an herbal tea!), it was caffeine free (I could have it before bed), and it smelled SO good when I opened up the canister (just like apple cider!).

However, after trying to steep it several different times, for various lengths of time, etc. I was not impressed. It just seemed to be very weak to me, even after trying to steep it with two tea bags. It just seemed like… something was missing from the taste.

Then I got the idea to try and steep this in some warm apple juice. I stuck a mug full of juice in the microwave for a few minutes, then added two teabags and let them steep for ten minutes and continued to let them steep as I was drinking the tea. Mmmm… Fall and apple cider-y deliciousness in a mug. I found this to be a much better way to drink this tea.

I don’t think that I would purchase this tea again for the sole purpose of making apple cider with it, but I will probably finish up what I have because it is a nice fall treat.

If you purchased it last fall, it quite likely has lost a bit of flavor due to its age…

Oops, I should have mentioned that these were my first impressions of it from when I had it after I bought it last fall. Sorry for the confusion!

Oh! :) Well, it sounds yummy with the apple cider brewing anyway! YUM!

Bio

I’m a University student, currently finishing up my degree in Illustration. I am an aspiring writer and hope to one day write and illustrate children’s books. Chapter books, picture books – I would love to do it all. That is the dream! :-)

I love tea and I am always excited to try out new and different flavors. Whenever I go to a new store I always have to check out the tea selection – and if I find a new one I always get really excited – and then my husband likes to laugh at me. ;-)

I’ve recently “acquired” a bad coffee habit that I am trying to break (needed the caffeine for all those late nights working on projects!) and am trying to make the switch back to mostly teas again.

I just happened to stumble across Steepster when I was hunting for some new teas to try and so far I’m really loving reading all of the reviews! It’s really fun to find so many people that like tea as much as I do!

If you have any tea recommendations for me, then please let me know! :-)
