David's Tea Forever Nuts

Country of Origin: not listed
Leaf Appearance: chock full o'nuts
Ingredients: apple, almond, cinnamon, beetroot and artificial flavors
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 205 degrees
Preparation Method: ceramic teacup and mesh infuser
Liquor: pinkish red

I sampled this tea as part of my David's Tea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar. I was excited to try this blend because I had been pleasantly surprised by David's Tea's Banana Nut Bread, which is another blend composed mostly of nuts. Unfortunately it was not meant to be. It tasted like lightly flavored apple cinnamon water. I found myself thinking, "Where's the nuts?". It was odd how pink the liquor was. The beetroot must have caused that but it looked almost like hibiscus tea. I try not to be overly negative when writing reviews but this blend was not my thing at all. It's a neat concept for a tea, just poorly executed.
