I’ve paired a nice Chinese Keemun with freeze-dried granny smith and red delicious apples, cinnamon chips and organic flavors, including some brown sugar and other yumminess that goes in an apple pie. I think this one is going to be really popular, so don’t drag your feet about getting yours.

When I opened the pouch of this Apple Pie Keemun from 52Teas, I was greeted with the delicious aroma of apple pie! A strong cinnamon note with lingering apple notes. Mmm! I started to get very excited over the prospect of tasting apple pie in a tea!
This is really quite tasty. When I first read the announcement about this flavor, I thought … “Oh … that sounds amazing. Apple Pie and Keemun tea.” The body of the Keemun is rich and full, and it offers a nice platform for the flavors of apple and cinnamon.
The Keemun has a slightly smoky note to it. This smokiness gives the cup a “fresh baked, home made” sort of goodness which is further enhanced by the buttery, pastry like flavors that I’m tasting. The natural fruit notes of the Keemun elevate the flavor of the apple. And the earthiness of the Keemun compliment the cinnamon.
A really good, palate-pleasing combination of flavors. It all works together very well!
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!
