Autumn Harvest! The same “Honey Mead” tea found at Fusion Teas; this is their wholesale source. It has a lot of interesting ingredients in it, some of which I don’t think I’ve ever tried in tea before: apples, sultanas, sour cherries, and propolis.

I think, because the dry fruit has such a raisiny appearance, I was expecting a very sweet, raisiny taste like the Tea & Scones tea I had pretty recently, but this is quite different. The base is quite malty, but there is a somewhat floral touch to the tea that reminds me of honeysuckle and a very weak rose, and a mild peppery note as well, that settles close to the end of the sip. The fruit notes are a little hard to pin down… there is a sweeter raisin sort of flavor, but also a sort of tart, underripe grape, but I actually really like how the two blend together. There is a very subtle nuttiness left on my tongue after the sip too, like almond or cashew? I’m surprised how much depth and variety of flavors I’m getting from this one. The last two teas I’ve tried have both been fairly unique and presented a lot of different flavors I haven’t really experienced from blends before.

For a morning cuppa while stuck working on a Saturday, this will certainly do.
