From Nil Organic Tea

Better than any other cider you’ll sip this season! We pair warm cinnamon chips and sweet apples with a subtle spicy kick of whole cloves and ground nutmeg.

Herbal Ingredients (caffeine-free): Organic and Fair Trade Rooibos, Organic Dried Apples, Organic Cinnamon Chips, Organic Whole Cloves, Organic ground Nutmeg, Organic flavor.

Use 2 tsp per 8 oz cup of hot water steeped for 5 minutes. This tea can be brewed multiple times by adding a few minutes to the steep time with each subsequent brew.

3 oz of tea will make between 50-75 cups.

Mastress Alita sent over some generous tea samples along with some of Bluebird’s Candied Yams that I wanted more of… I only had a little left of sample! So THANK YOU SO MUCH Mastress Alita for that amazing tea package! I really appreciate it and hope you love the Bluebird teas I sent over. I think the picture for this tea is the black tea version and not the rooibos that I was able to try here. I really like this rooibos blend. I think it has a balanced mix of the spices and a slight sweet apple flavor. I somehow haven’t ran into a blend like this in all my tea drinking days, which is why samples of unique blends from other Steepsterers are so fun. :D

You’re welcome! I’m new to Bluebird but excited to try them (my boss first name-dropped them to me from some British YouTubers she follows, as everyone at the library knows what a tea addict I am!). I was doing the dirty deed of descaling the kettle today (ugh!) so I have one of their fruity green blends currently cold brewing in the fridge right now. :-)

Nil only has a photo for their black tea version available on their website, but one of the interesting things about their company (other than the “organic” angle) is they have a tea version and an herbal alternative for all their blends. I ran into them at the Portland Saturday Market (a Farmer’s Market on steroids) on a birthday vacation to Portland, Oregon last year. I wasn’t crazy about this blend though, but only because I wasn’t picking up on the apple flavor. It was a nice spice blend though, and I would use it to blend into other teas that I felt were low on the spice sometimes.

I was a fan of Bluebird when they were hand stitching their tea samples, so I’m glad they are growing so much and people are discussing them on Youtube. :D I didn’t even realize this tea is organic, which makes it even better that it can taste this nice. Also, I wish I could take vacations to Portland. haha :D

For a tea called “Spiced Apple Cider”, this tea is all spices, no apple. Even using a full tablespoon of tea, the tea is all spice notes — cinnamon, nutmeg, and in particular a strong clove flavor that is left lingering on the tongue — but there is just no apple flavor left in the naturally sweet rooibos base. Adding a touch of sugar helps the tea become much more palatable, as it rounds out and mellows the spices a bit and brings out a slight hint of the apple notes lingering in the background, but it simply isn’t enough to make me think “apple cider.” I think the name “Spiced Rooibos” would have been far more appropriate.
