Washington Apple starts with a black tea from Africa. This base tea is malty and bright with a delicate astringency. You'll find notes of caramel and toasted bread. To create a beautiful September blend, cranberries are added into the blend to play off the astringent hints in the base tea and fill out the mid-palate notes. Lastly, diced apple pieces are blended in to sweeten up the tea and help form the overall autumn flavor portfolio as it pairs very well with the cranberries.
