Steeped this up a bit strong because I knew I was going to be adding oat milk to it. It’s nice and spicy with some great notes of clove and a woodier cinnamon as well. I get some of those smoky undertones from the Lapsang but it’s not too much – and I like how it trails into the finish and aftertaste. The apple feels somewhat drowned out to be between the spices, smoke, and heavy creaminess of the oat milk but I do taste some of that sweet green apple note near the end of the sip.
It’s a nice mug of tea, and just the right amount of flavourful for the morning, but I definitely liked it better without the oat milk.
