In the sample bag this smells like a cobbler—heaven! There’s fruit, spices, maybe even some bake-y notes. Surprisingly, it’s a totally different tea when steeped. I tried this hot and cold brewed, and both times it was very very fruity. The peach and apple are quite natural tasting, but strong, to the point where the black base is kind of hanging out in the background. There are some nice malty notes and I think they picked some pretty strong teas to go with these flavors, which is good otherwise they’d be lost entirely.
There are no cinnamon or bake-y flavors at all in the brew, so it’s definitely not the tea I was expecting. Iced, though, it’s really lovely, fruity and bright. Great with a slice of lemon while watching summer storms! Sometimes a tea doesn’t meet your expectations but surprises you in other ways, which this one definitely did.
