|"I did really enjoy the natural apple flavor the tea provided and that alone makes this tea quite tasty."|
Upon opening the package, I was met with huge chunks of apple, hefty spheres of caramel, cloves, and ginger pieces over a green tea base. Steeping instructions were provided on the sample packet, but were a little vague with the recommended water temperature. I went with one heaping teaspoon in 180-degree water and a three-minute steep. As I patiently waited, the scent of the leaves reminded me of spiced apple cider rather than caramel apple. The liquor brewed to a golden hue with very little aroma wafting from the cup.
While the ingredients of this blend attempt to replicate a caramel apple, the actual flavor reminds me more of a semi-sweet apple cider. I found the caramel aspect of the tea to be the most lacking, but perhaps my particular teaspoon’s worth didn’t contain an individual caramel piece. I decided to try a second cup, and this time, I scooped out a ball of caramel and added it in. The liquor of the second cup was very cloudy and the caramel was a bit more pronounced, but not overly so. I did really enjoy the natural apple flavor the tea provided and that alone makes this tea quite tasty. Overall, I enjoyed the cup and I would definitely have it again.
