Day 19 of the PostTea advent. Quince seems to be a fairly rare flavour in tea, so I was really pleased to see this one! It’s another green blend also, which PostTea seem to do well. The dry leaf smells delicious, and fortunately this carries through to the tea. So far, so good.

I can’t say I’ve ever tried an actual quince, at least not knowingly. I have had quince scented shower products, though – most memorably from Future Primitive Soap. Wild Grass and Quince Jam is one of the scents I permanently associate with summer holidays in Scotland now – it’s super evocative, for me.

This tea has a similar vibe. It reminds me of a citrus fruit, only sweeter, and was a jam-like aspect. Maybe apricot? That’s not quite right, but it’s hard to describe quince in terms of other flavours. I think it’s a member of the pear family, so pear crossed with green grape? Gooseberry? Something like that. There’s a mild background floral that suggests pear to me, although here I think it’s created by the addition of rose petals, rather than coming directly from the dried quince pieces.

I like this one. It is kind of autumnal, and PostTea’s green base works well here. I’d happily drink a lot more of this!
