Taster’s Review:

Mmm!  I admit that my first thought was “another apple tea” but now that I’m tasting this, I don’t mind at all.  This Sweet Apple Cider Iced Black Tea from Southern Boy Teas is really good.

I hot brewed this iced tea, bringing 1 quart of water to a boil and then letting the tea bag steep for 2 minutes.  Then I strained the tea into my favorite iced tea pitcher and brought another quart of water to a boil and resteeped the bag for 2 1/2 minutes.  No, this doesn’t make the tea too strong for me, it’s strong, yes, but not too strong.  Then again, I like my tea strong.

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I really like the Iyerpadi estate tea that Southern Boy Teas has been using for their black tea base.  It’s got a pleasant flavor, it doesn’t have a bitter taste nor is it astringent.  It’s smooth and even without tasting too weak.  It’s really a delightful tea.

The apple flavor is coming through nicely.  I found that with my first few sips, the apple flavor was less obvious than the cinnamon, which seemed to overpower.  But, after the first few sips, the apple notes developed and the cinnamon waned just enough.  Now, the cinnamon is still a strong presence, but the apple comes through and adds a pleasant sweet-tart note to contrast with the warm, zesty taste of the cinnamon.

Really tasty!
