I sampled this tea as part of my David’s Tea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar. It was sweet and mellow with fruity notes and a hint of citrus. It wasn’t as tart as I thought it would be since that is a flavor that I associate with kiwi. I thought that the apple was much more prevalent and I was definitely able to taste the lemongrass and lemon peel. There a touch of astringency but only so much as to leave a dry finish after each sip. Although it wasn’t a bad cup of tea, I definitely found myself wishing for a punch of kiwi. I think that this is another case of a decent blend that doesn’t quite live up to its name. This isn’t a tea that I’m likely to purchase again but you might enjoy it if you like apple flavored green teas.
