From The TeaCupany

Fresh apple pieces are sprinkled throughout the hibiscus flower pieces that make up this wonderful blend with rose hips giving a bit of tart taste to round out the flavor of this mix. With no sugar or caffeine this is a great playful tea to have at the end of your day when winding down, or a great addition to a strong black tea to make a beautiful medley. On its own, blended with other teas, hot or cold, you really can’t go wrong with this mix.

Best if steeped for 5 minutes at 212°

Ingredients: Hibiscus flowers with rose hips, apple pieces and natural apple flavors.

Another sample from the lovely Dexter.

Years ago I used to go for afternoon tea at The International House of Tea in Thunder Bay, and they had a marvellous Turkish Apple tea that was nothing but apple pieces, but had an amazing bright lemony apple flavour. And then it went away and I was very sad, and I’ve been on the hunt for a comparable tea since (just checking their site, they have a Turkish apple tea again, so maybe I’ll have to order.)

So anyway, that’s my backstory to wanting to try this tea, even though it’s loaded with hibiscus, and I generally don’t like hibiscus teas.

Well I still don’t much like hibiscus teas, and this one isn’t working too well for me, unsurprisingly. I opened the bag to take a whiff and was nearly knocked over by just how tart it smelled. I think this is the most acidic smelling tea I’ve ever encountered, because it was like sticking my face into a bag of vinegar. Nostril burning sour.

Steeped it’s better. The liquor is a bright pink, which is pretty, and the vinegar has mellowed, but is still there on the nose. Just a hint of apple cider vinegar.

Taste-wise, there’s a bit of apple, but mostly it’s just tart, tart, tart.

This tea certainly lives up to its name, but I was hoping for something similar but very different.
