Based on the high reviews here, I did this as a sample with my recent semi-large S&V Order. I also tossed in Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake, but have not tried that one yet.
This one does apples well, and I never say that lightly, as in many companies blends apples are mainly a feature advertised and a pretty tea visual but without much flavor. This time the mild and fresh taste of crisp apples is actually present, and it’s not false.
I started with 3 minute steep, but adjusted after taste to brew another two minutes.
The tea and toast flavor come through very well as lukewarm stage too. It’s a light and fun fall tea – I did not eat any breakfast or brunch with it so almost feel like I cheated, but I so rarely have french toast I think it’s been like 10 years – at least I can have it a bit in the tea, even though I’m not getting as much of the toast, but instead more of the apples.
I will see if that changes with other brews. Wondering if this will be good with a touch of maple syrup sweetener too.
