drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
252 tasting notes

I’m giving this one another go—since I still have plenty left—but adjusting the temp & time.

Someone recommended that the reason I’ve been having trouble with this tea is that I’ve been steeping it too hot for too long. Oh, probably. So, today I tried steeping it at only 75°C for only 3-4 minutes and… it still tastes bland.

Yes, I’m getting the apple-y-ness and the pie-y-ness, but it’s not astounding my taste-buds into believing that I am drinking apple pie. Just an apple & spiced green tea. I guess this one is destined to become a “company tea” that I serve to guests who want something a little fancier than plain black tea, yet I won’t be sad to see it go.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
