I took this out of the GCTTB3 way back last summer but never tried it until now.
The previous notes about a weird spice flavour had me worried that this would taste like… curry mixed with apples somehow. I was expecting something like turmeric, I have no idea why.
Anyways, this tea doesn’t taste weird – unpleasantly sweetened, maybe, but not savoury in an unexpected way. I can definitely taste apple and clove, and possibly some cinnamon. I’m also getting a tartness that makes me think of rosehip or hibiscus, even though the liquor isn’t that red.
However, I do taste some sweetness like stevia was added to the blend. Just a weird sort of chemical sweetness that tastes kind of thin and hollow.
It shouldn’t be too hard to finish this off, but not a restock.
