OMG it does exist!!! Thank you TheTeaFairy for sending me a sample of this tea.
Yes folks, this is an apple tea WITHOUT cinnamon. I don’t understand why every apple tea has to be drowning in cinnamon. This one isn’t and that makes me happy. Unfortunately I’m not that crazy about the green base. It’s a little sharp, bitter for my tastes. Did I oversteep it? I don’t think so, maybe a hint. I’m torn, love the tart apple don’t like the green base….

Kusmi also has an apple tea with only apple in it, and that’s on a black base. If you can find it where you live, you might want to give it a go. I quite like it. There’s also Jeweled Apple from Tea Palace which is apple and caramel-y things. Veeeeeery nommy, but I don’t know what Tea Palace might be like shipping-wise outside of Europe.

Thank you for the suggestions. Will keep my eyes open for those two. :))

VariaTEA

Nina’s also has Marie-Antoinette which is rose and apple. It is quite nice.

Amariel

There is also Big Apple, from Davids…

True, they are hard to find, that’s the reason I gave it a try. It’s currently my favourite apple tea for that same reason. (Don’t mind the green base but would work better with a higher grade green tea base, that’s for sure) I do like cinnamon, I even love it. But apple and apple-cinnamon are two very different things, and I love me some delicious plain tangy apples :-)

Pomme by Hédiard is a black tea with apple only – I think I sent you a sample of this one, if not I will

Bio

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
