Apple Brandy. If it is as good as this tea is then I really want to try some. The dry and wet leaf have a light fruity smell. Not quite an apple smell but maybe cooked apple? It’s just a guess but I believe the black base used is English breakfast. Somewhat woodsy with different earthy notes popping up here and there. A unique blend with the fruity notes that come from the apples. Surprisingly I do not taste the brandy but then again alcohol is very hard to detect in tea even when brewed correctly.
