I remember buying apple tea when I went for a long weekend (coinciding with the European Championships basketball, in September 2001 : because Turkey ended up playing the final, it was almost impossible to get tickets, but I managed to get one for the second semi final Yugoslavia-Spain because many Turkish fans left after the first semi-final) to Istanbul. I was offered apple tea whenever I visited a market, and ended up buying a huge sample to take home. It was a type of soluble tea, which I admit tasted much better in Turkey than it did when I prepared it at home ;-) … but here Bruu has sent me a tea called “Turkish apple” and I was kind of expecting what I first discovered in 2001. Nothing further from the truth, I think…this is primarily a real dried fruit based infusion, and it needs more than 10´of steeping, but it then is possibly the best fruit infusion I ever had! Fruity, but nothing overly sweet, elegant both in nose and mouth, a bit tending towards a sparkling wine sort of experience, without the alcohol, and with a balanced little acidic touch to it…great!

Bruu says : The finest West Indian lemon grass, sweet apple pieces grown and dried in the hot Turkish sun with succulent latin American pineapple. It is a soothing hot beverage during cold winter months and a refreshing thirst quencher in the summer when served over ice.

I´m not sure whether there will still be sample left to get to summer and try the iced version ;-)
