I received this tea in a swap with Super Starling! It’s actually clever because every time you type her username, you have no choice but to seem excited. Which you probably should be.
So, she sends me this tea with a note stating something to the tune of “I hate this tea. Hot Potato. You take it.” So I did. I bravely (stupidly?) drank that sample first out of all that she sent me. It was also recommended that I drink it iced.
I brewed it up and then poured it over ice. I tried it hot first. Just a few sips. Maybe I brewed it with too much water but it didn’t taste too horrible. Slightly sweet with a tang of sour apple candy. But fairly easy to drink.
After I iced both of my infusions and started drinking them, I realized what Super Starling! was referring to in her review. There is that artificial tangy apple taste/feel that kind of coats the tongue. While I was drinking it, I felt it but even after I was done that feeling and flavor lasted for even a few hours later. Mostly as a background but still there.
While I don’t think I hated this one as much, I can see why someone would dislike the artificial sour apple flavor that coats the mouth for quite a long time afterwards.
