This is from a past Bird & Blend subscription box, which I’ve signed up for again! Their subscription is surprisingly reasonable – it’s about $15 per month for 20g each of 3 teas (so 60g total), and that’s including the international shipping.
This is one of the better mulled teas I’ve had (it seems to be a rather common concept for the holiday season). It does have hibiscus, but it’s not too strong. It adds a nice light tartness that accents the apple flavor well, and it contributes to the color as well.
There’s just a little bit too much ginger in my opinion, but I’m not the biggest fan of ginger so that may just be my preference. It’s not overpowering, by any means, and it does pair nicely with apple. There’s also some gentle clove and cinnamon. Perhaps a bit of lemon as well?
Overall, it’s a good balance of sweet and tart with some nice spice notes. And the ginger is growing on me as I drink it… ;)
