So I somehow ended up with several teas from Pinky Up. I think I got a sample through Sips By and liked it enough that I decided to try some of their other teas? This one happens to be a flowering tea, which I don’t really care about. But I love apple-flavored things! So I used two flowers for my 16-ounce teapot, and brewed them in my usual steeping basket.
The resulting brew is light in flavor, next time I would consider using three blooms. I really like the flavor that’s here though. The base tea is slightly smoky with notes of apricot, and a light astringency. The apple flavoring is quite convincing – like a mixture of unfiltered apple cider and crisp, sweet apples (one of the crunchy multicolored varieties).
Overall, it’s a lovely apple tea. I do wish they offered this one in regular loose leaf, as the fact that it’s a flowering tea makes it much less cost-effective.
