Warm Apple Pie anyone? Come on, you know you want to! The smell of this is absolutely divine – it’s like warm apple pie, there’s heavy apple, an almost pastry kind of smell and a strong wave of honey-vanilla. The taste is something else entirely it’s like a sweet oven baked apple that’s been drizzled with honey.
This is so incredibly good, it really is desert in a cup it’s amazingly satisfying and it’s not over sweet either; it’s the perfect combination of apple sweetness and apple tang. This just blows away all the other apple and Turkish apple teas I’ve had before. The Honeybush gives this real depth so it doesn’t feel like you’re drinking warmed up pieces of fruit, it tastes like a full bodied drink which is really, really delicious. I can totally understand why the tea is called ‘Red Delicious’ because that’s exactly what it is. Although it’s not a brilliant red it’s more a browny-red but that’s totally nit-picking.
I bought this tea without trying it and I am always so apprehensive about doing that, but the picture is so captivating I just had to try it. And I have to say I’m sold- the quality of the tea is very impressive and when boiling water hit the infusion all the leaves, berries and apple pieces expanded fully revealing their true natures. Big and I mean BIG berries are in this and they look just amazing.
I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who likes apples and especially to people who enjoy Turkish Apple but are trying to avoid the sugar intake because not only does this taste better than any Turkish Apple I’ve had there’s no sugar in it (or at least it’s not made of sugar and what sugar there is occurs naturally).
This is just incredible – seriously incredible.
