well, in my quest to find something to replace the NIna’s Paris Marie Antoinette tea (without ordering online), i discovered this on sale at the local World Market! brought it home and eagerly prepared a cuppa, steeping one sachet in about 9oz of freshly boiled water for 3 minutes. Initial thoughts? Although very slightly artificial tasting, overall quite delicious! I think the Nina’s base tea may have been a little more strong than this tea, but it’s still in there, taste-wise. the rose and apple flavors joust merrily with each other, never one beating the other back, but coming to a pleasing detente in the mouth. the aftertaste has just a touch of apple cider flavor to it, so i suppose apple wins after all.
Since i only had the Marie Antoinette once, in a french cafe in NM, i cannot directly compare. going by memory though, this is not an exact match, but does indeed scratch the itch when i’m craving some lightly perfumed apple tea, an apple tea that is not cinnamon-spice-based. plus, the price is definitely right.
all this said, i really hope my mom, local to that french cafe, gets me a box of Nina’s for Christmas.

Second steeping for 3 minutes yesterday…eeeeew, flavor washed out, is awful. Second steeping today for 5-6 minutes….mmmm, super apple-y, not as much rose, but still tasty! Def not doing a third steep, can’t imagine it would work at all.
