Taster’s Review:

This tea smells like my gramma’s kitchen after she’s baked an apple pie, and it tastes like someone put her apple pie filling and some Formosa Oolong tea into a blender and took it for a whirl until completely liquified.  YUMMY!

The Taiwanese Oolong base seems a good choice for the flavors of green apple and zesty cinnamon.  It has a smooth, rich flavor and it’s natural fruit tones accent the tart apple very well, providing just enough sweetness to keep the apple in balance.

The apple is a tart apple – perhaps Granny Smith?  That is what it reminds me of.  Not quite as tart as Gravenstein apples, but more like the tart-with-a-touch-of-sweet apple you’d find in an apple pie.  And the cinnamon is not a spicy-hot cinnamon.  It is a warm, inviting spice that enhances the overall flavor of the cup.

This tea screams Autumn to me, but it is an ever-so-soothing and gentle scream.  I love this time of year, and I am loving this tea.  Teas Etc. continues to impress me!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
