I bought this on a whim while I was on vacation in Iowa. Yes, vacationing in Iowa. I haven’t been the biggest fan of teas that were more spice than tea. This is definitely one of those. So instead of brewing it naked, I brewed it in local apple cider. This was fantastic. It paired well, perfect for spiced cider. If I do brew this naked, I will add black tea or jamaica flowers. It’s a good base.
