Usually I’m really unimpressed with Pure Leaf teas, but this whole line up of “Tea House” teas seemed a little intriguing and against my better judgement I decided I would pick up one of them and give ’em a try…
Actually? Really good!
The apple taste is really strong and clearly Fuji Apple! It’s got that crispness that perfectly ripe apples have, followed by juicy sweetness and a rush of flavour that coats the mouth very pleasantly. Really sweet, but naturally and in a way that isn’t cloying. I expected a lot more ginger flavour than I’m actually experiencing; it’s pretty light compared to the almost apple-juice like notes of the fruit, but it works well paired against them. The green tea is only faintly distinguishable from the other flavours, but what I can taste works well with the added ingredients. It’s a bit grassy.
I actually liked this, and would be tempted to buy again for times when making loose leaf/sachets is not convenient/doable.
