Just like the forbidden fruit, a tea full of temptations. Inspired by mulled wine, this fragrant tea can be naughty or nice.

Ingredients: Assam Black Tea, vanilla, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, ginger, accented by hearty apple, orange peel and cherry bits.

Health Benefits: Melange of warm spices and malty Assam tea makes it a perfect winter tea. Perfect to cure winter chills and rid you of stress and tardiness. Each ingredient has its own healing properties. Overall, a good tea to boost your immune system and add to your daily dose of antioxidants and nutrients.

Caffeine content: High

Origin of tea: Assam, India

Available as: 100g loose leaf / 15 tea bags

Taste notes: Smooth, fruity and balanced. Makes an intense, dark brew. Reminiscent of a rich, indulgent plum cake.

Serving Suggestions: Pairs well with cheese toast, carrot cake, and dark chocolate desserts. We like it hot, without milk and with a hint of sweetener. Makes a great base for cocktails and mocktails. 

Brewing instructions: 

Add 1 teaspoon or 1 tea bag per cup (150ml). Always pour hot water (100°C) on the tea leaves and not the other way around. Steep for 3-4 minutes. All our teas in tea bags or loose leaf can be rebrewed. Just add hot water and steep for longer than the first steep

Storage advice: Store in the foil pouch in the tea tin or transfer to an airtight container, kept in cool dark place.

If storing in the refrigerator/ freezer, pack in small completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for the tea to reach room temperature to prevent any condensation. Each packet should be used within a week after opening.

Not too strong, not too subtle, perfect tea to rewind by oneself but also goes well with company and conversation. :)

This is my second order with Tea Trunk and I was NOT disappointed!

I was gifted a Tea Trunk gift box last year and I have been hooked since. This is the second time I am ordering Apple spice because it hits all the right tones, and I love the flavor.
