Our Simple Apricot Black is just that, nice and simple. It focuses as much on the South Indian Black Tea as it does the extras in this tea. The apricot presents a strong nose when you first smell this tea. But as you brew it, the apricot settles into a much more subdued profile. The slight caramel of the black tea mixes with the apricot to be slightly sweet but still very rich.
This tea would be a great iced tea that will be a lighter “flavored” tea. You can add a little milk to this tea but we like it served neat.
Ingredients: South Indian Black Tea, Dried Apricot Pieces, All Natural Flavor, Safflower Petals, Sunflower Petals
I absolutely fell in love with this tea. The apricot flavor is amazing and blends very well with the black tea. While the apricot a is very present flavor, it does not overpower the tea. I prefer this tea with just a bit of sugar to compliment the flavors and bring the apricot out a bit more.
