I tried this one for the first time this morning. I was very careful of the temp and the steep time, as I’d read this one is tricky to get right.
I poured some tea at the 1 min mark, and some after 2 min so I could compare the two. Strangely enough, the 1 min steep had an astringency to it that the 2 min didn’t. I preferred it after 2 min.
It did have an apple-like taste to it, but it wasn’t so distinctive that I feel the need to buy more than the small sample that I bought. There were a couple of really big chunks of apple in my 20g bag, that I think made up most of the weight of the “tea”.
This might be good iced, but I’m not really an iced-tea kind of girl.
