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. : )

Well, this needed refreshing. I have been drinking loose leaf for many years, and have fairly well nailed down my tastes. I love Chinese blacks and some other unflavoured teas. I occasionally drink flavoured teas, or herbals, but the bulk of my tea is unflavoured with no additives. I stock regularly from Teavivre with the occasional Verdant purchase and the odd re-stock at Davids. I love mint, am learning about the wide world of puerh, and prefer ripe to raw, so far. I don’t like green or green oolongs very much, white is okay and roasted oolongs are pretty good. Coconut and chamomile are awful, and I wish they weren’t in so many blends!

At home, I live with my husband and cat in a house built by my grandfather, which we love. We share many interests – books, tea, video games, board games, tv/movies. On top of that, I love crosswords and recently took up knitting again, so I’m having a hard time balancing all my passions at the moment. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, as is my entire immediate family. I love spreading the Who love!

We also spend a lot of time with family, when we can. I’ve got a gaggle of younger brothers, and we like to spend time with them. The wonders of the internet allow us to spend time together even though some of them live a few hours away.

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: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
