16 Tasting Notes
Not a bad tea. At first I didn’t like it, it had a mesh of spice that seemed like over-kill.. however after a few more sips the apple flavor was more pronounced and made for a better flavor. I’ve had smoother blends, but this one would be a good substitute on a cold day I think. I also think it would have probably benefited from some milk and maybe sugar.
Unsure how to rate this. I have made it 3 or 4 different times, and each time I primarily just taste warm water with a hint of green tea, and a bitter earth flavor that I can only assume are the berries. Odd, since the ingredients state this blend does have blueberries in it, which should have added some sweetness? I steeped it a bit longer than it called for, still not much difference in the results. Maybe it’s just not for me.
I am honestly a little on the fence with this one, but because I wouldn’t actually steer people away from it I’ll give it a thumbs-up. Has a smooth and slightly bold flavor, not too fruit in my opinion, and a little bit sour (in the expected citrus way, given it has grapefruit). Couldn’t pick out the peony, but maybe that’s just me?
