Home – 8:20 PM

So I somehow ended up with several teas from Pinky Up. I think I got a sample through Sips By and liked it enough that I decided to try some of their other teas? This one happens to be a flowering tea, which I don’t really care about. But I love apple-flavored things! So I used two flowers for my 16-ounce teapot, and brewed them in my usual steeping basket.

The resulting brew is light in flavor, next time I would consider using three blooms. I really like the flavor that’s here though. The base tea is slightly smoky with notes of apricot, and a light astringency. The apple flavoring is quite convincing – like a mixture of unfiltered apple cider and crisp, sweet apples (one of the crunchy multicolored varieties).

Overall, it’s a lovely apple tea. I do wish they offered this one in regular loose leaf, as the fact that it’s a flowering tea makes it much less cost-effective.

How did you brew this? I tried this today, steeping it 4 minutes in 175F and it tastes like apple juice flavored tea.

Looks like I steeped two orbs in 16 ounces of 175° water for 3 minutes. Is apple-juice-flavored tea bad?

No, just very different from what you had so I was curious if it was because we steeped it drastically different. We did not so I guess it’s the magic of tea and how people can have such different experiences.
