I love when companies send out samples with orders, because it usually means I’m trying something that I ordinarily wouldn’t have chosen for myself, like this one. I was surprised at how good the dry leaves of this one smell. There is a buttery sweet quality to them that reminds me a little of Movie Night, along with a fruity apple aroma. The flavor is very smooth and of sweet apple. There is a fresh, tart apple aftertaste that lingers. I usually find white teas too lightly flavored for my liking, but this one is amazing. Although the apple flavor is soft, there’s a richness to the apple and buttery flavors that’s very appealing. I would probably even order more of this one!

-Dry blend has medium and large pieces of brown and green tea leaves and twigs with large pieces of dried apples.
-Dry leaves smell buttery sweet with a note of fruity apple. Tea liquor aroma is of soft sweet apple.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium bright yellow color.
-Smooth sweet apple flavor and finish. Fresh tart apple aftertaste that lingers.
-Best with sweetener.
-Very good tea. Sweet and tart apple flavor with a hint of butteriness.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
