Let me just start out by saying how refreshing it is to try an “apple” flavored tea WITHOUT cinnamon as an additive. Thank you! It’s nice! Spread the word to other tea companies.

This tea is a very mellow and smooth black tea with just a smidge of apple behind it. Apple is not the main focus, but it is harmoniously playing in the background. It’s there when you want it to be there. I’m also getting that bake-y taste.

The sample I received in my teaswap was in bagged form. For my 1st cup, I removed the bag after about 5 minutes. I tried to resteep, but ended up with faintly apple-flavored hot water. For my 3rd cup, I used another teabag and left it in until I finished my cup. No bitterness…just a little more apple…or bakeapple. YUM! I added just a faint sprinkling of Splenda and it was wonderful. I bet it would be lovely iced. It’s light and thirst-quenching.

Daaaaark Tickle! shivers

Edit: OK, so there’s no actual apple in this. WTF am I tasting?…the word apple? LOL! I’ll stand by it though. I tasted a dry/tart (Granny Smith apple) kind of taste.

oh you know it!

Except…there’s no actual apple involved. Bakeapple is a type of wild berry related to the raspberry.

Did you get this from TeaEqualsBliss? I know I sent her a bunch awhile ago. :D

LENA

That’s freakin’ wild! Maybe it’s that dry/tart taste (kind of like a Granny Smith apple would taste)…or simply the power of perception. I really liked it though. Yep, TeaEqualsBliss hooked me up with 2 teabags. I’d love to try the bakeapple beer or liqueurs that Wikipedia talks about. MMM!

@LENA: Awesome isn’t it? Here’s a picture of bakeapple/cloudberry: http://www.berryscotland.com/cloudberry.jpg
And here’s the company’s website (if you dare): http://www.darktickle.com/
Although I didn’t actually buy the tea from them, but from a Canadian company that sells unique food items. I also bought a jar of their crowberry jam which I haven’t tried yet.

@Ricky: Stop trying to mooch more teas from me! Jeez! ;P

Ricky

LOL! What!?!? This is Lena’s post, so if anything I’m mooching from Lena. You know what! I’m just going to fly over to Canada and haul away your cupboard one evening while you’re not around =P
