drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA

Revisiting this in an attempt to clear out some more tea. There is still enough left for 3 or 4 cups of tea, which is sort of annoying because I’m still not super fond. I steeped it at a lower temp this time which helped cut the green tea flavour, but this still isn’t right for me. It is shockingly like an apple pie, but the green tea is blechy and the hint of cinnamon is just not quite right. There is an aftertaste to the sip which I don’t appreciate and actually find hard to describe. It’s almost plasticky or chemically? It almost acts like pie crust taste, but then there is something off about it. I think this one is at it’s best while hot and if I can’t drink it within 15 minutes or so, I should just stay away. Oh well, at least it’ll be over soon! : )

I used mine up by making applesauce with it. It didn’t do much for me as a tea either.

I just placed an order for this… hopefully my taste buds have a different opinion than yours!

I really liked Mom’s Apple Pie. But it was definately a hot drink not a cold one.

Daniel Scott

Huh, I adored Mom’s Apple Pie, so I’m always surprised by people who dislike it. I barely taste green tea in it, admittedly, but that’s generally a good thing for me.

@Daniel – Trust me, green tea taste is not my friend. I frequently seem to feel nauseous after drinking green tea, so I rarely try it (even inblends).
@Krystaleyn – I had no idea there was stock of it left?? It was a fall tea, wasn’t it? I saw a harvest tin in the boxing day sale at my local DT a few months back, but haven’t seen it since.

Kittenna

Well, I was able to order it off the website (50g), so I’m assuming there was some left! Pretty sure it’s not available in my home store anymore though. Just felt like trying it, although I know I won’t likely be able to restock if I do. The real reason I placed an online order was to get some Swampwater, though, as apparently it is also back in stock, and given how fast Cherry Blossom sold out last time…!

I’m actually not surprised that there’s some Mom’s Apple Pie left seeing as how it was not a crowd pleaser…

Daniel Scott

@Uniquity & Kay – I thought it actually sold out at most physical locations a while ago, and is mostly only available online now? I know it sold out in my city weeks ago.

What I was using was from the fall when it came out. It got relegated to the back of the shelf pretty quickly. : )

Bio

I am a lover of many things, but my passions include my records, tea and books (not necessarily in that order!) I embrace local food and good cooking as much as I can, and place great value on time with family and enjoying the bounty of nature. As of January 2014 my husband and I finally moved to the country to be closer to family and continue our journey in a family home. We have been wanting to do this for a couple years, so we are very excited to follow our hearts. We also have a wonderful kitty named Emma that is the princess of the house.

I am drawn toward good Chinese blacks, enjoy some herbals and the odd roasted oolong. Greens and whites can make me nauseous, but I will have flavoured ones on occasion. While I don’t yet adore puerh, I am giving it my best effort. Chamomile and coconut are the devil though, I wish they didn’t exist. Mint has been a particular favourite of mine since childhood, and I enjoy both flavoured and pure teas though unflavoured blacks are tops for me.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: WOW. This is the cream of the crop.
71 – 80: This is a solid tea. I enjoy it, and would recommend it to others, but may not repurchase.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. May try again to improve.
41 – 60: Bleh. Might finish it, but it’s not to my taste OR just doesn’t impress me at all.
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
