This is my third go at this one. I’m still not sure what to think of it. At first I was too shocked by the sourness to notice anything else. I certainly didn’t expect that – I’m not very fond of sour teas. I tried twice to sweeten it with honey but instead of eliminating the sourness it just made me gag. But –
This time I mentally prepared myself for the sourness. I decided to keep the tea bag in longer than the package suggests, and I think it did the trick. Tasting it now I realise that it actually tastes exactly like it should – it tastes of baked apples. When the tea hits the tongue it’s still shockingly but not unpleasantly sour. As you begin to swallow you can taste the cinnamon and the pie crust. Wait, pie crust? Baked apples, not apple pie! I must’ve meant the almonds, hazelnut brittle and the mysterious “flavourings”.
It’s not the kind of tea I’d drink to calm myself down after a stressful day. This is more of an interesting gourmet experience. I still have 12 tea bags left – that’s pretty good conditions for falling in love.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Cinnamon, Pleasantly Sour
