This is a medium strength black China tea with added dried apple pieces and apple flavouring. The added apple pieces give a sweet, sugary flavour to the black tea. This grade is a medium leaf so takes slightly longer to infuse which realises the sweet acidity from the apple peel.
Our adjoining county of Herefordshire is known for its apples, normally found in wonderful ciders. Apple flavoured tea is a good alternative to putting sugar in the tea and because of the acidity it isn’t normally paired with milk.
