Trader Joe's Apple Cranberry Herbal Tea Blend
This tea has a delicate flavor, with a soothing herbal essence, and both subtle apple and cranberry flavors coming through—although it smells like apple much more than it tastes like apple. There's a slight tang to the flavor, no doubt thanks to the cranberry.
Both Sonia and I wanted to put sweetener of some kind in it. That's not been the case with every Trader Joe's tea—in particular, the Harvest Blend comes to mind as a tea with a very similar fruity flavor, but one that didn't beg for added sugar or honey for some reason. I could drink that one plain. This one's not terrible by itself, but I think the overall flavor is a little more pleasant with something added.
Sonia made another video to explain her feelings in a little more depth, and to show off the beautiful December snow we recently had in our area.
Three and a half stars from Sonia. Three stars from me.
Bottom line: 6.5 out of 10.
I'm waiting for this tea. Trader Joe's told me its seasonal, but can't tell me when the tea is coming back. I'm disapointed, because I was looking forward to it a lot. My favorite tea.ReplyDelete
