drank Apple by Adagio Teas
77 tasting notes

I realized I haven’t reviewed Apple before despite it being in my top 5 teas.
I absolutely despise that Adagio chose to discontinue this tea and I have no idea why they would make such a move. It was highly rated, used in tons of custom blends that were popular and frankly it’s delicious.

This tea with a little cream and sugar makes for the flavor of apple pie in my cup. What is not to love?

That said, I still have most of a pound I bought before it was out of stock forever and I’m drinking some tonight because I decided I wanted to make some bubble tea.
So I mixed up a strong batch (5 teaspoons in my 32 ounce Ingenuitea) and brewed it 3 minutes then let it cool. (I’m pretty sure I accidentally oversteeped it just a bit, but I couldn’t tell in the end so whew!)

I poured about half the cooled tea in my shaker, added more sugar than I’d like to admit (because this is a treat damnit), warmed some milk in a cup in the microwave, added about 8 ounces of milk, and then added about 4 ounces or so of sour apple flavor liquid (like you use in Alcoholic drinks).
Next I shook it up until frothy, then poured it into a prepared tall glass into which I’d drizzled caramel syrup along the sides and especially around the rim.

Voila! DELICIOUS caramel apple bubble tea. Mmm. So refreshing.

I know, right? I was surprised that the tea had such a low rating on Adagio’s site; it was really, really good!

Still a favorite. I hate that they discontinued it :c I begged them in multiple emails not to!

While not perfect, I’ve found a decent substitute in Ahmad’s Apple Refresh tea. It’s pretty good for a bagged tea, but in my area at least, not so easy to find.

I still have a half pound of Apple tea fortunately. Some time still but I will miss it when it’s gone.

Loves tea, reading, music, art, video games, roleplaying, and spending time with her wife and daughter. :)

Ask me for a $5 gift cert to Adagio if you’ve never ordered from them!

As for tea, loves flavored black teas, herbals, and good lattes most. Green is hit or miss with me and I haven’t found a white I like yet. I like my tea sweet, no matter how much some tea connoisseurs turn their noses up at me for it. I love trying new teas and I’ll try anything once!

I noticed this elsewhere on the site so I’m going to post a ratings legend as well:

95-100 Favorite; This is one of my favorite teas. I will want to keep this in stock all the time. I will drink a lot of this tea. I’m likely to send samples of this in swaps because I LOVE it and want to SHARE my love of it with you!

90-94 Excellent; Some of the best teas I’ve tried. Delish. I will probably buy more.

80-89 Very Good; I liked it and would like to have it again for sure. I will surely buy it again at some point. Not quite “The best” of any category, but some good stuff to be sure.

70-79 Pretty Good; Maybe it’s just not quite my type of tea or not quite my flavor, but I acknowledge that it’s a good tea. I might drink it again if the mood strikes me. Not very likely to buy it again. May still recommend it to others based on their tastes.

50-69 Okay; I probably won’t buy it again, but will probably finish drinking what I have. It’s not bad. Not good… but not bad. I probably won’t recommend it.

50 or less Meh; I didn’t really enjoy this tea. I won’t buy it again and can’t recommend it.

10-0 I must have really, really hated this tea. It may have killed my puppy or absconded with my cheesecake. I’m pretty sure it killed Professor Xavier.
