What For Teas Sake says about themselves (taken from online source):
That’s the short answer as to why we created For Tea’s Sake but as with most things, it runs much deeper than that. At its foundation is the passion and love for the world’s most universally enjoyed beverage. It’s the understanding of how the simple act of enjoying a delicious cup of steeped tea, whether alone or with friends, brings comfort and solace to the mind, body and soul. It is an appreciation for the artistry involved in creating unique and distinctive blends. With all of this in mind, we embarked on a journey to master the art of custom blending teas.
Without question, we knew to achieve the type of blends worthy of this mission; we must start with the world’s highest quality teas. That’s why For Tea’s Sake’s blends are globally sourced from tea farms throughout the world. To ensure nothing but the highest quality tea leaves are included with our blends we select only the top 5% of each crops’ yield. These quality teas are hand-blended with other natural ingredients such as fruits and herbs to deliver a truly satisfying and memorable tea experience.
Our mission has taken us all over the world; learning more about each specific regions tea specialty but also the cultural significance tea plays in each. We were enlightened by the knowledge imparted by masters of their craft and learning that each country and region offered their own unique teas and flavors.

MY REVIEW BEGINS
Oh, But wait. and important code for a 15% discount use code: TEAVAULT15
Here is what I think
Again another hearty tea with “bits and pieces”. You know what you are getting and you can almost taste it, in fact I am sure you can if you wanted to.
What I liked
This tea is a bitter tea with a tart apple flavor. Apple being the main flavor with a finish of the other ingredients equally blended together, a beautiful fall mixture that will warm you up inside and out!
What I did not like
Some like a tart tea, I’m not always a fan and would generally add a sweetener to it to make it more palatable for me.
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instruction chart below to help you brew your teas.
