Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: David’s Tea
This tea will bring you right back to your childhood. Thanks to the spicy aroma of cinnamon, the sweet smell of apples baking in the oven and the fresh green tea blend. Don’t remember that last part? Okay, so we added the green tea. It’s a great way to bring all the nostalgic flavour of mom’s dessert right to your mug. So wherever you go, you’ve got the warm memories…but not the calories. Mom would approve.
This is absolutely fantastic. It really does taste like apple pie. All that’s missing now is a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
The dry leaf has large chunks of apple and chips of cinnamon stick along with long spears of green tea leaves. It smells amazing – the cinnamon is very dominate in the aroma but there are lingering notes of apple and pastry, too.
While the green tea seems a little lost in the fragrance, it is not lost in the flavor. I can taste the sweet, buttery taste of the green tea as well as a nutty undertone. These characteristics are very complimentary to the pie-like taste.
The cinnamon is the strongest flavor here, and I like the warmth it provides. It is sweet yet spicy. The apple comes through nicely too, it is sweet, and as I continue to make my way toward the bottom of the cup, I notice more of the tartness of the apple.
This tea is part of David’s newest Fall Collection, and it certainly does evoke thoughts of autumn. I like this one best hot, because it just seems more comforting and cozy when it’s a hot tea … although it is tasty iced too.
This one is a winner!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
