This was one of two teas I got for my birthday from my parents, the other being the Pink Grapefruit and Orange cold infusion which I haven’t tried yet. I was curious about these because the instructions say that you only have to use one teabag for 500ml, and you only have to leave it in for 5 minutes. How could that be possible?? I have no idea if it’s true or not, because I left my teabag in the water bottle for a few hours like I would with any cold brew. Maybe I’ll try it the recommended way later. As soon as it started steeping I was hit with a delicious apple scent, more like a hard-boiled sweet than fresh apple. It’s by far the most prominent note in flavour, too, but not quite the level of sweet or artificial I was expecting from the scent. There’s a minty background which adds a really refreshing twist, but I didn’t notice the cucumber at all. There was a slight waxy note I didn’t love, although that could be my fault for leaving the teabag in for so long. I left the bag in as I drank it and refilled my water bottle after I finished, which I then left in the fridge overnight. The flavour of this second steep was a little more delicate, but still pretty flavourful, and less waxy so overall I think I preferred the resteep. I was hesitant to try these when I first saw them in the shops because it seemed like a gimmick, and quite expensive for what amounts to 12 teabags. I’m glad I got some for my birthday though because I’m actually quite impressed, and on the strength of this one would consider picking up a couple more flavours to try. The watermelon one is calling my name!
