drank Baked Apple by DAVIDsTEA

Mmmm. Here’s hoping this one comes back this winter. I still have a bit left in the tin and decided a cup of this would be the ticket. I used two teaspoons and have a pretty good ingredient distribution (an issue with this tea). I only have one big piece of orange left in the tin though and I seem to be saving it for a special occasion. Anyway, after a ten minute steep this yielded a powerful and sweet liquor, reminiscent of apple cider but not quite as intense. Perhaps a diluted apple cider, like one might do for children (why are children’s juices watered down, anyway?) Yum!

I don’t think it is coming back this winter. They have their voting right now for a tea to bring back and make permanent and it doesn’t include Chocolate Chili Chai as they are bringing it back with the winter teas (as I understand it anyway) and Baked Apple is one of the ones you can vote on.

Good eye Cattibrie, you sleuth!

I was pretty disappointed with the options for the ‘tea resurretion.’ Also surprised at some of the ones they discontinued that I didn’t even realize, lol. Thanks for pointing that out!

I am voting daily for Pink Flamingo since it is the one that I can’t find a replacement for. Hope it can get through. If anyone is not interesting in voting for any of them please consider doing me a favour and vote for Pink Flamingo.

@Cattibrie – If you ever place an order with Joy’s Teaspoon try the Wellness tea. I found the two remarkably similar. That’s actually why I didn’t buy much Pink Flamingo as I had loads of Wellness already.

Thanks for the suggestion Uniquity. I will go check it out.

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.
