Love this tea!
I am usually just a black tea drinker but once I tried the Wild Apple Ginger I was a convert. This tea is perfect when you are looking for an alternative to black tea. The ginger flavor is comforting and soothing. The combination of flavors is perfect for day or night. Sometimes I add a bit of the Tupelo honey or any honey. I think the flavors are wonderful and it is now my favorite tea from Tea Forte!

Somewhere in the middle
If the entire Tea Forte collection were graded on a bell curve, Wild Apple Ginger would rate a respectable C. Not bad, definitely drinkable, but If I'm going to have apple tea, I prefer Harvest Apple Spice, and if I'm going to have ginger, I want Tea Forte's original Ginger tea, which I think is not offered any more. These are the five-star teas my palate craves. BTW, the most delicious tea in the white tea collection is Tupelo Honey Fig. I wrote a stellar review about it, but for some reason it was never posted by the webmaster. Tea Forte folks, how about pulling that one out of the collection and selling it in larger, pyramid-packaged quantities?

Sweet, Slightly Spicy Tea
This blend is very mild for a ginger tea. The apples provide a moderately sweet base, and the blackberry leaves add a little tartness. The ginger puts a very light note of spice in the aftertaste.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
