I love this tea. Love love love love love. This is on my list of always-must-haves for a reason. I’ve seen people compare this one to Mom’s Apple Pie (which I personally found to be only as appealing as watered-down cider), but I beg to differ.
As if the apples (and cinnamon, but mostly apple) weren’t enough, the almond offers a divine, almost flowery yet smooth taste of its own, has a satisfying aftertaste that lingers, and don’t get me started on that fascinating colour! The tea is slightly tart and cinnamony, yet sweet enough on its own to forgo the sugar, and when iced it might nearly pass for some fruit cocktail.
PS – Since the ingredients are only apples, almonds, cinnamon, beetroot (for colour) and “flavour”, I gave it a quick flush (to hydrate the tea and dilute the extra colour), strained it, and tossed the “leaves” straight into my banana bread mix. It was lovely, although a word of caution before reattempting this would be to be wary of the extra cinnamon.
