Received this one from RogersCK in round 1 of the Secret Pumpkin swap.
To me this one smells weird. There are pieces of dried apple in this one, I often find dried fruit smells weird to me, kind of alcoholic like. It is also very pretty looking with little red sprinkles in it.
I used 2 tsp to brew a about 8 oz cup, which is unusual for me, I usually go with 1 tsp. But there was large chunks of dried apple so I probably have 1 tsp of actual tea with the dried fruit in addition.
The smell of this one is reminding me of dust. Like a piece of dusty furniture. It is not making me sneeze, but just the smell of it. Not sure where this is coming from.
The tea tastes not too bad. I can definitely taste dried apple, almost like a green apple but not terribly tart. I am getting hints of caramel. I can definitely taste the red sprinkles, which have always had a distinct taste to me. I am happy to say there is no dusty taste. I think the name of this was, caramel candy apple, is accurate.
