I’m down to my last few SBTs, which is sad but not exactly overdue. I’ve had them a while, after all. I’m surprised this one only has one other note, because it sounds like a crowd-pleasing flavour combination to me. Who doesn’t dig a caramel apple?
In practice, it’s pretty good. There’s more caramel than apple, but it’s a decent kind of earthy-sweet caramel, and the honeybush works really well as a base here. The apple could be a bit stronger, but it develops at least a little towards the end of the sip and lingers nicely in the aftertaste. It’s more of a candy apple than a flavour-accurate apple, and definitely red rather than green, but that fits pretty well with the overall vibe as far as I’m concerned.
It’ll be easy enough to drink 2 litres of this, although I’ll probably share some with my Dad later on this evening. He’s coming round tonight, and I’ve definitely got him hooked on the old iced tea!
