Palais des Thés Advent Calendar – Day 23 (from November backlog)
Hmm, I have mixed feelings about trying this. I love pear, but blackberry leaf is another story… It can be so cloying.
So this mostly tastes like apple to me. Maybe with a little bit of pear mixed in there? But it’s definitely cooked pear. I don’t really taste the blackberry leaf much, which is a good thing. Maybe a hint of earthy herbal flavor at the end of the sip?
I find this to be a very boring and somewhat bland tisane. The only real flavor here is apple, and even that isn’t very prominent or dimensional. It’s a bit like what I would expect to get if I just steeped a bunch of dried apple chunks in water. Meh!
Flavors: Apple, Earth, Herbaceous, Pear, Sweet
