Reminiscent of strolling through an apple orchard on a fine spring day and catching its light, enchanting scent in the wind. This lovely green tea with local apples is porch swing approved.

Today has been a very humid and rainy day. The sun has tried to peek out here and there but for the most part it has been just a “meh” kind of day. Until the mail showed up. . .and my shared order from Piper & Leaf showed up. Yay! New tea to try! Day isn’t so meh now.
Opened the box and immediately grabbed the Applecart Blossom sample. I was super excited to see that they offered flavored green teas and this one went in the cart right away.
The boyfriend and I are in the middle of a Northern Exposure binge. I had never seen the show before and it is one of his favorites. Thought this would be a great time to sample up these teas. So I threw the sample in the Breville, set the parameters to green, and set up two mason jars with ice.
This is delicious. There are huge pieces of apple in this and that comes thru in each sip. Fresh crisp apples. The green tea just adds to the perky flavor. Each time I take a sip of this iced beauty the word bright comes to mind. This is just a simple great fantastic apple flavored green tea. No artificial flavor here. I brewed up a second infusion and I am still picking up the fresh crisp flavor.
I am very pleased with the teas I’ve had from Piper & Leaf so far and I’m looking forward to trying more!
