From the HHTTB2

Adagio hit the mark with this one. The taste is all apple. It’s bright and fruity with a sweet/tart taste that reminds me of a crisp green apple. Yum. The base tea is surprisingly thick and silky. It’s perfect with the apple flavor and makes this tea into a real treat.

Also, I’ve now discovered I like apple teas. I guess this shouldn’t surprise me since I like pear teas, but apple is not a flavor I would’ve gone out of my way to buy when looking at flavored teas. Now I know!

it’s hard to find a really good apple tea (I mean apple as only flavour). I have Hédiard’s one but I don’t like it as much.Which pear tea would you recommend ?

I like SBT: Pear and Design-A-Tea’s Ice Wine a lot. Even though Ice Wine isn’t supposed to be a pear tea it has a nice pear flavor. Oddly though, I don’t like it iced. It’s much better hot.

I find it interesting that some fruits like peach and melon translate to tea so well while a good apple tea is much harder to find. I wonder why that is.

in the south west of France we make a dessert with peach or pear + sugar + wine. We leave the fruits for 15 minutes in this bath and eat them. We call this Pêches au vin and Poires au vin. Very simple and very good. So it’s not finally so surprising an iced wine tea can taste pear :)
Apple is complicated in tea. Thanks for the suggestions for pear teas

The Tea Haus also has a tea called Turkish Apple that is just plain dried apple, apple peel, and lemon flavour. I haven’t tried it, but I admit I am quite curious.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.
