I keep trying to write my review, but you guys– all I can think of is apple cinnamon instant oatmeal.
(Okay, let’s back up a sec.)
I brewed this cup of Souvia’s Harvest Moon green tea this morning looking for something calming and settling on my stomach. I wanted something sweet and tasty, but light and not overdone. The dry leaf smells strongly of apples with a hint of spice, which bodes well for what I’m in the mood for.
The literal second the hot water hits my steeper, I am immediately hit with the overwhelming scent-twin of the instant apple cinnamon oatmeal packets of my youth. Seriously, it’s spot-on. I steep for a few minutes, and the flavor matches the scent exactly, with just a hint of grassiness from the green tea. Overall, it’s a pleasant cup, no need for honey (as I often prefer my greens) but there’s the tiniest, lingering thought that I’m actually drinking my adolescent breakfast-to-go. If you’re a fan of warm, comforting scents and chilly-weather-appropriate green teas, this might just be your perfect cup.
In the meantime– I’m going to the grocery store. I’ve got an oatmeal craving to fill.
