Tea Revv Advent Calendar – Day 3
(originally written November 3rd)
I love the cute, modern artwork on these Tea Revv advent packets. This one has a polar bear on it! ❤
I accidentally used more water than I meant to for this tea. Since I’m doing this advent and the Simpson & Vail version at the same time (and they have different amounts of tea in them), I forgot that I was only steeping 12 ounces of tea with these packets. Oh well!
It didn’t come out terribly weak, which is good. I would say this is a fairly good spiced apple tea. There’s a bit more spice than apple, and it’s quite sweet overall. Definitely a good dusting of cinnamon along with a bit of apple. It also does taste a bit pastry-ish, maybe with some almond? The base tea mostly tastes of dried leaves and is a tad astringent. Definitely not a quality green tea.
It’s almost good, but not quite there with the light apple flavoring and less-than-flavorful base.
