Supposedly this is an Earl Grey, and though I can see hints of that, I wouldn’t have said it was unless I’d seen the packaging. It’s very mellow with a slightly sweet smell (the mallow flowers possibly), though the taste is mostly black tea and a hint of jasmine and other florals for me. I don’t really taste the apple, though I could smell them in the loose tea before I brewed it. It’s not immediately jumping out as a favorite, but I could see it being a tea I come back to. We’ll see if it grows on me as I finish off the sampler.
Flavors: Floral, Sweet, Tea
