I was really intrigued when I saw this in my fall tea collection that I picked up at Davids’s Tea. It is comprised entirely of fruit and nuts (apart from the artificial flavoring). That is not something that I had ever seen before. The result was just as sweet and somewhat less nutty than I expected. It was reminiscent of my favorite baked treat but not in an “in your face” kind of way. The nuts came through almost as an aftertaste. This would make a great dessert substitute for someone with a sweet tooth. One word of advise though, make sure you use a strainer that will be easy to clean! The first time I made this I used a fine mesh strainer and it made a bit of a gooey mess. I’m not big on flavored teas but a lot of the ones that I’ve tried from David’s Tea have been pretty spot on.
