This tea opens with deep, fruity notes of apple and something like dried apricot. (I’ve only ever had dried apricot, so the taste immediately reminds me of the chewy texture. Weird!) Soon after, it gains a honey sweetness and very light whispers of cream. All of this is underscored by brandy and the bitter touch of pecan skins. Not unpleasantly bitter, mind you. The tea base lends a mineral, rocky taste that pairs quite nicely with the cinnamon/apple/brandy/pecan combination. It’s a definite winner…I won’t have any trouble finishing off the ounce I have, though it will be missed when it’s gone.
