First steeping note for this tea? Shame shame! A few odd ingredients here, I’m not sure would work, which is probably why I didn’t try the sample I bought seven months ago. Yikes. I wasn’t sure chocolate and apple would work together. I also wasn’t sure what type of green tea was in this one. I really wish companies would list specifically which green tea as there is a big difference between a sencha or a hojicha in a chocolate blend. I didn’t see any bright green leaves, most everything was brown, so I’m guessing the green tea is actually a roasted one BUT the picture actually shows green tea leaves. hmm. There is no apple I can detect: just sweet creamy milk chocolate with a medium bodied base. Very similar to another Fusion chocolate tea, but I can’t tell which one right now. Just pure milk chocolate here! The second steep was just as chocolatey.
